Syria | Foreign Ministry: Israel rogue entity against international legitimacy no less dangerous than Daesh, al-Nusra

Syria has renewed its call on the Security Council to assume its responsibilities within the framework of the United Nations Charter and to oblige the Israeli occupation entity to respect its decisions related to the Separation of Forces Agreement and to hold all parties that support terrorism and launch attacks on Syrian sovereignty accountable.

In a letter sent by the Foreign and Expatriates Ministry to the UN Secretary-General and the President of the Security Council regarding the Israeli aggression on Syrian territory on Tuesday, the Ministry said "At 23.36 p.m. on Tuesday, June 8, 2021, the Israeli occupation authorities launched a new act of aggression on the territories of the Syrian Arab Republic, by launching successive waves of missiles from the direction of Lebanese territory, targeting the central and southern regions."

The Ministry added "The treacherous Israeli aggression coincides with the continuation of armed terrorist groups to commit cowardly terrorist acts against the Syrian people in some areas, and this aggression also comes within the framework of the systematic propaganda campaign led by the United States of America and some Western countries which are subordinate to it at such a time of every year to extend the effects of Security Council Resolution 2165 on the illegal Cross-Border Assistance Mechanism under false and flimsy allegations claiming their concern for the humanitarian situation in Syria."

The Foreign and Expatriates Ministry then added "Syria affirms once again that the continued faltering terrorist practices of the Israeli occupation authorities against Syria and some countries and peoples of the region, which they have increased their brutality and criminality, especially in their recent war in the occupied Palestinian territories, in addition to their threats that are widely heard against the countries of the region lately,  would not have been possible without the American and Western care and protection for them, and finding illegal or immoral justifications for them that encourage them to continue their aggression and arrogance, which may lead to consequences which those countries will bear international responsibility for their repercussions, knowing that Syria is certain that these countries and their peoples know the truth that “Israel” “ is a rogue entity against international legitimacy and it poses a threat to international peace and security, and its danger is no less than the threat posed by the terrorist organizations of Daesh (ISIS) and Jabhat al-Nusra."
