People of Golan Refute Allegations of Zionist Media, Stress Adherence to Syrian Identity

Jul 10, 2012

QUNEITRA, (SANA) – People of the occupied Syrian Golan reiterated their adherence to the Syrian nationality and their rejection to all practices of the Israeli occupation forces.

In a statement made by religious and social bodies in Majdal Shams town, people of Golan refuted the allegations of Zionist media outlets saying that they halted excommunication measures against the Syrians who accepted the Israeli IDs.

They stressed their commitment to the national document made on March 31st 1981, adding that the Golan is an integral part of the homeland, Syria.

Sheikh Atef Shaalan from Ein Qniyyeh town told SANA that "We are Syrian Arab people, we were and we'll continue to be. occupation will go eventually as several armies came to this region and went out throughout centuries."

Sheikh Hayel Sharaf from the occupied town of Mas'ada said that "These media allegations are an attempt to target the people of the occupied Golan as they preserved their Arab identity despite more than four decades of occupation."

Hassan Fakhr Eddin from the occupied town of Majdal Shams said that the 'excommunication' measure is taken against any person from the Golan who disobeys the will of his society and refuses the national principles.
