CAIRO, May 5 (Xinhua) -- Egypt condemned on Sunday the recent Israeli attacks on Syria as "violation of international principles and laws."
"The attacks would increase complication to the situation in Syria, in addition to posting a threat to the security and stability of the region," read a presidential statement.
Egypt rejects the aggression on Syria's sovereignty and the use of its domestic crisis under any pretext, "although Egypt strongly objects to what is happening in Syria," it said.
The statement described the recent Israeli attacks on Syria as "a test" for the international community, particularly the UN, over Israel's commitment to the rules of the international law.
"Egypt invites all states to bear their responsibilities in facing the recurrent Israeli violations and preserve international peace and security," it said.
The official statement from Egypt came in response to the recent Israeli attacks against some Syrian military positions as stated by Damascus.
The Syrian Foreign Ministry said Sunday that Israeli airstrikes earlier in the day targeted three Syrian military positions and left a number of deaths and injuries, while Syria's Information Minister Omran al-Zoubi said the Israeli move "opens the door widely before all eventualities."
On Friday, U.S. media said Israel attacked a convoy carrying missiles from Syria to Hezbollah in Lebanon. This was confirmed by an unnamed Israeli source, although the Israeli Foreign Ministry and Israeli Defense Forces remained silent on that.
