Syrian Government Denounces Barbaric Israeli Crimes against Palestinian People in Gaza

Nov 14, 2012


DAMASCUS/GAZA, (SANA) – The Syrian government denounced the barbaric, reprehensible crimes committed by the Israeli army against the Palestinian people in Gaza Strip on Wednesday which resulted in a number of martyrs and injured.

In a statement, the government called on the international community to pressure Israel into ceasing its aggression on the people of Gaza Strip, imploring the free and honest people of the world to move seriously to confront this tyranny and repel Israel which constantly ignores international legitimacy and shirks international resolution in blatant violation of international law.

The statement said that the Arab people are needed today more than ever to act and exert pressure to support the Palestinian people's steadfastness and struggle in defense of the Palestinian cause, which is the central cause of the nation.

The government offered condolences on its behalf and on behalf of the Syrian people to the families of the martyrs, affirming that despite the aggression and conspiracies against it, Syria will forever remain faithful to its obligations and stances towards the Palestinian people in terms of them reclaiming their occupied lands and establishing a free and sovereign Palestinian state with Jerusalem as its capital.

Nine Palestinians Martyred by Israeli Aggression on Gaza Strip

The number of Palestinians martyred by the Israeli aggression on Gaza Strip reached nine so far, in addition to more than 30 wounded. A large explosion also shook Gaza city on Wednesday afternoon.

Among the martyrs are infant Ahmad al-Masharawayi who was only 11 months old, child Rawan Arafat who was three years old, Issam Abu al-Maza, Mohammad Hani al-Kasih (19 years old), in addition to Ahmad al-Jaabari and Mohammad al-Hams.

Shortly before 7 PM, the Israeli occupation army bombarded 50 sites in the Sector and carried out more than 20 air raids.
