Syria called on the United Nations Security Council to condemn Israeli attacks on its territory and take immediate measures to stop it, Syrian state media reported on Thursday evening.

Israel and Syria have exchanged fire on numerous occasions in recent months. On Wednesday night, Israel's air force attacked a weapons depot situated in rural areas around Hisya, south of the Syrian city of Homs, Arab media reported.

Several reports claimed that the Syrian military launched a surface-to-air missile against Israeli jets from its 72nd Division Base but did not hit them.

Two weeks ago, the IAF attacked and destroyed a Syrian SA-5 anti-aircraft battery east of Damascus after it fired a surface-to-air missile at Israeli jets.

Five days later, the IDF hit three Syrian regime artillery positions following five projectiles that were launched towards Israel earlier that morning.
