DAMASCUS - Syrian Foreign Ministry charged Sunday that the Israeli airstrike that targeted military positions overnight is an indication to the coordination between Israel and the radical groups affiliated with the al-Qaida-linked Nusra Front.

The ministry's remarks came in a letter to the United Nations, in which the ministry said that "the flagrant Israeli aggression against positions of the Syrian army underlines the coordination between Israel and the terrorist groups affiliated with the Nusra Front."

"The blatant Israeli aggression aims to render a direct military support to the terrorist groups after their faltered attempts to make gains on ground," the letter read.

Earlier in the day, Israel has carried out airstrikes that targeted a number of army positions in Damascus, mainly at a military research center in the suburb of Jamraya.
