RIYADH: Saudi Arabia slammed an Israeli air strike that hit targets near Damascus as a "flagrant violation" against the war-torn country's territory, the kingdom's official SPA news agency reported Monday.

The Saudi cabinet "condemns the Israeli aggression against Syrian territories which it considers a flagrant violation against the territories of an Arab state and against its sovereignty," SPA reported.

On Wednesday, an air strike targeted surface-to-air missiles and an adjacent military complex near Damascus believed to house chemical agents, according to a US official.

In Munich on Sunday, Israeli Defence Minister Ehud Barak implicitly confirmed that the Jewish state had carried out the air strike.

Saudi Arabia had repeatedly voiced support for the Syrian rebellion against President Bashar al-Assad's regime.

Iran, the Sunni kingdom's arch foe and Assad's staunch ally said on Monday that Israel will regret its latest "aggression against Syria."

The UN says the Syrian conflict has left more than 60,000 people dead.
