Israeli Ambassador to the UN Danny Danon filed a formal letter of complaint to the United Nations Security Council Wednesday demanding action against the Iranian attempts to attack Israel from Syria.

On Saturday, the IDF foiled an Iranian attack against Israel.

This attempted attack is neither the “first nor the second major Iranian attack intended to escalate the security situation in the region, guided by Soleimani and the Quds Force," Danon wrote.

He added that the Syrian regime knowingly allows its territory to be used by Iran and its proxies for terrorist activities, including armed attacks.

"It is imperative that the Security Council acknowledges Syria’s responsibility in this regard and hold it accountable,” Danon wrote in his letter.

The Israeli ambassador called the international community "to make it clear to Iran, in the clearest terms possible that it will not tolerate its regional malign activities including its central role in supporting terrorism."
