The Syrian Foreign Ministry summoned Thursday the chief of the United Nations Disengagement Observer Force (UNDOF) in the Golan Heights, Iqbal Sangha, over an alleged Israeli airstrike on a military research facility near Damascus.

"Syria has handed an official complaint to the UN regarding the Israeli violation of the 1974 disengagement agreement," the state news agency SANA reported.

UNDOF supervises the ceasefire on the Israel-Syria border.
