The Foreign and Expatriates Ministry said that the Israeli attacks on Syria prove the dangerous and hostile course followed by the Israel occupation Army with the aim of destabilizing the region and making the situation in it more complicated, stressing that these attacks seek to raise the collapsing morale of terrorist organizations.
In letters addressed to the UN Secretary-General and the head of the Security Council on Tuesday, the Ministry said that on the dawn of Tuesday January 9th, 2018, the Israeli occupation authorities carried out three rocket attacks on Syrian Arab Republic territories.
The Ministry said that these attacks prove the dangerous and hostile course followed by the Israel occupation Army with the aim of destabilizing the region and making the situation more complicated, which serves the Israeli goals of supporting terrorism and maintaining its occupation of Arab lands, in addition to raising the collapsing morale of terrorist organizations that are being dealt severe blows by the response of the Syrian Arab Army’s response to these terrorists’ attacks in Harasta area and their attacks on Damascus and its suburbs with more than 200 rocket shells.
The Ministry stressed that the recurring Israeli attacks on Syria will not succeed in protecting the terrorist organizations which are Israel’s partners and proxies, primarily Daesh (ISIS) and Jabhat al-Nusra, nor will they prevent the Syrian Arab Army from making achievements in fighting terrorism across Syria, the most recent of these achievements being in Idleb and Quneitra provinces.
The Ministry said that the persistence of the Israeli occupation authorities to violate blatantly Security Council resolution no. 350 for 1974 on disengagement, as well as several Security Council resolutions and international charters on counter terrorism, wouldn’t have happened without the unlimited support provided to the occupation by the US administration, support which gives Israel immunity from accountability and allows it to continue carrying out state terrorism against the region’s peoples and to threaten peace and security in the region and the world.
The Syrian government once again warns Israel of the serious repercussions of its attacks on Syria and its support for armed terrorist organizations, the Ministry said, holding the occupation entity fully responsible for these actions.
The letters concluded by demanding that the Security Council condemn these blatant Israeli attacks and take firm and immediate steps to prevent such attacks and hold Israel responsible for them.
