The Israeli jets reportedly used eastern Lebanese airspace to carry out the strike.

But Israel's former air force chief revealed in August that it had carried out nearly 100 air strikes since 2012 on arms convoys destined for the Iran-backed Hezbollah movement, which is fighting alongside the Syrian army in the country's civil war.

JERUSALEM--Israel Air Force jets reportedly fired on an ammunition warehouse in Syria Wednesday evening.

Syria's Foreign Ministry on Thursday called on the United Nations Security Council to condemn Israel's attacks on Syria after an Israeli strike late on Wednesday.

Israel has acknowledged carrying out airstrikes in Syria since the outbreak of the bloody war in the country six years ago to stop arms deliveries to Hezbollah forces.

Stressing that any "Israeli" military action against Lebanon would not be successful, Aoun made clear that "no one can rely on anyone [else] to defend his country".

The Syrian army responded by firing a surface-to-air missile in the direction of the aircraft, the commander said.

It warned that it would intensify its response if stray fire from the Syrian conflict continued to fall in Israeli territory.

The Nov. 1 strike is the third in Syria attributed to Israel in recent weeks.

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