Syria on Thursday accused the UN Security Council of "turning a blind eye" to Israeli strikes in its territories, less than a day after Israeli reportedly attacked a chemical weapons plant near the town of Masyaf.

"It is unacceptable that the Security Council is doing nothing about it," Syria formally stated, accusing Israel of "systemic aggression." It even went as far as claiming that Israel perpetrated the strike as a way of assisting ISIS.

IDF Chief of Staff Gadi Eizenkot on Thursday addressed the latest developments, saying, "The rapidly-evolving threats, together with a volatile security situation, present us with a complex challenge that we must face on a daily basis."

"We are constantly working to improve our military capabilities, strengthen our deterrence and foil any attempt to harm our country's security and prosperity," Eizenkot added.

Israel has so far remained silent about the alleged attack, which was initially reported on Arab-language media outlets. Syria's army confirmed these reports and said two of its soldiers were killed in the attack.
