Ambassador Bashar Ja'afari said in identical letters to Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon and the Security Council dated Jan. 31, and circulated Thursday, that Israeli aircraft flying at low altitude to avoid radar headed to the research centre in Jamraya, Rif Dimashq, and bombed it, killing two employees and injuring five others. They returned by the same route over an area north of Mount Herman, he said.Syria says there is no truth to the convoy narrative
Ja'afari warned that the Security Council's failure to condemn "Israel's grave aggressions ... would lead to instability and undermine regional and international peace and security."

"Syria holds Israel, and those in the Security Council who are protecting it, fully responsible for the consequences of this aggression, and affirms its right to defend itself, its territory and its sovereignty," he said.
Ja'afari said the airstrike followed several failed attempts over a period of months by armed terrorist groups to enter and take control of the research centre, "and occurred after Israel, in co-operation with states hostile to the Syrian people, had ordered its lackeys inside the country to strike selected vital Syrian military sites."
Syria called on the Security Council "to condemn unequivocally this blatant aggression by Israel against the territory of a sovereign state and its violation of the Charter of the United Nations" as well as international law, council resolutions, and the 1974 agreement that separated Israeli and Syrian forces in the Golan Heights following the 1973 Yom Kippur war.
These determined efforts and the subsequent attack by the Israeli aircraft against the scientific research centre prove beyond a doubt that Israel is instigating, benefiting from and, in some instances, carrying out, whether directly or through its lackeys on the inside, the terrorist attacks against Syria and its people," Ja'afari said.
Obviously. A conclusion that can be drawn quite easily by simply paying attention. A conclusion already drawn by myself and others who pay very close attention
