In the past, all attacks carried out by the Israeli Air Force in Syria were against targets located in a more southern part of the country.
"We will not allow Iran and Hizbollah to build the capabilities which allow them to attack Israel from Syria", he added.
The Syrian Foreign Ministry filed a complaint to the United Nations Security Council and the Secretary General on Thursday, following the earlier strike it blamed on Israel.
The army statement warned against the "serious repercussions of such acts of aggression on the region's security and stability".
Army radio quoted Syrian opposition sources as saying that the airstrike destroyed weapons including chemical-tipped missiles that were to be delivered to Hezbollah.
Katie Holmes + Jamie Foxx Seemingly Confirm Couple Status With Hand-Hold Pic
New pictures obtained by TMZ and Daily Mail show the rumoured lovebirds walking along the shores of Malibu , California. Insiders said Foxx's two daughters and Suri Cruise, Holmes' daughter with ex-husband Tom Cruise , weren't present.
While Syrian is pointing the finger of blame at Israel, Jerusalem has not commented on the reports that the locale, which is responsible for chemical weapons, was struck.

The SSRC oversees advanced missile production and remaining stockpiles of chemical weapons, including sarin gas.

George will be dressed in his new uniform, a navy v-neck pullover, matching Bermuda-style shorts, long red socks and black shoes. The Duchess suspended all Royal engagements as a result of the illness, for which she has previously been hospitalised.
However, former military intelligence head Amos Yadlin posted on Twitter that the site "produces the chemical weapons and barrel bombs that have killed thousands of Syrian civilians". He has said that is something Israel can not accept.
But that Israeli officials have in the past admitted to Israel hitting weapons shipments believed to be bound for Hezbollah, an ally of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.
Syria's army did not mention the SSRC in its statement.
Hezbollah, based in Lebanon, fought a war with Israel in 2006.
A few weeks later, Hezbollah launched an operation against Daesh in west Qalamoun simultaneously with the Lebanese Army's "Fajr al-Joroud" offensive on the outskirts of northeast Lebanon's Al-Qaa and Ras Baalbeck.
Colin Trevorrow leaves Star Wars 9
That would make sense, since he's already directing The Last Jedi , the next film in the core Star Wars series. It only took Lucasfilm, owned by Disney, a day to find their replacement - double Oscar victor Ron Howard .
