BEIRUT (AP) — Syria has condemned the Israeli airstrikes against targets around Damascus, saying the attacks aim "to give direct military support to terrorist groups" fighting the government.

The Syrian Foreign Ministry also said Sunday in a letter sent to the United Nations and the U.N. Security Council that the "Israeli aggression" killed and wounded several people and "caused widespread destruction."

Syria's government refers to rebels trying to topple President Bashar Assad's regime as "terrorists."
