Damascus expressed its condemnation of the Israeli aggression against the city of Deir Ezzor yesterday, and renewed its demand for the Security Council to assume its responsibilities and take firm and immediate measures to prevent the recurrence of these attacks.
The Syrian Foreign Ministry said that the “brutal Israeli aggression” coincides with the practices of the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), which it described as “terrorist, criminal and oppressive against the Syrian people in Hasaka, Deir Ezzor and Raqqa,” which is supported by the American administration and the international coalition forces.
The Foreign Ministry added that there is “clear and open harmony to implement American projects and some client states, including Israel, a rogue entity that is indifferent to the United Nations Charter or international legitimacy resolutions.”
In a letter sent to both the Secretary-General of the United Nations and the President of the Security Council, the Ministry said that these Israeli attacks also identified “with the recent crimes committed by armed terrorist groups in more than one area in Syria that led to the death and injury of a number of Syrian citizens.”
SANA reported that the Foreign Ministry considered in its message that “the frequency and coincidence of the Israeli attacks with terrorist attacks once again prove beyond any doubt that there is agreement and coordination between all the parties hostile to Syria, some of which occupy parts of its land and violate its sovereignty, territorial integrity and political stability, and to exchange roles with the aim of Implementation of their joint agenda aimed at supporting and continuing takfiri and economic terrorism and to achieve some separatist projects in the region.
The ministry said that Syria affirms its “determination, with the help of friendly countries and its allies, to recover every bit of soil from the lands of the Syrian Arab Republic, to liberate it from the abomination of terrorism, and to reconstruct what has been destroyed by the terrorists and their supporters.”
She added, “The Syrian people will remain determined today, more than ever before, to uphold the inevitability of its victory over terrorism and to restore the occupied Syrian Golan until the line of June 4, 1967.”
The ministry concluded its message by calling on the Security Council to assume “its responsibilities within the framework of the United Nations Charter, the most important of which is the maintenance of international peace and security, to take firm and immediate measures to prevent the recurrence of these Israeli terrorist attacks, and to oblige Israel to respect its decisions related to the Separation of Forces Agreement and hold it accountable for its terrorism and crimes against the Syrian people.”
