Damascus, SANA- Foreign and Expatriates Ministry affirmed on Wednesday that the massacre, perpetrated by the air force of “the international coalition” through shelling al-Badiyah Addakheliya school in al-Mansourah town in al-Raqqa city is a new episode in a series of aggression launched on Syria’s sovereignty and safety of its territories under the pretext of combating terrorism.
“The attack claimed the lives of over 30 children and women and it injured tens of Syrian civilians in addition to destroying the school which was home for nearly 50 families displaced from Aleppo, Raqqa and Palmyra,” Foreign Ministry said in two letters sent to UN Secretary General and President of Security Council.
It added that this coalition, which was established without any coordination with the Syrian governments, has perpetrated a lot of massacres against the Syrians whether in Aleppo towns and villages, or in Raqqa and Deir Ezzor countryside and other areas.
The Ministry regretted that the UN, particularly Security Council, stood silent and didn’t condemn those crimes or make any movement to stop the aggression.
“The government of the Syrian Arab Republic calls upon the UN Security council to assume its responsibilities to stop the massacres and acts of destruction and sabotage perpetrated by the international coalition,” the Ministry said.
The Ministry added that the Syrian Arab Republic reaffirms its conviction that combating terrorism in Syria requires coordination and cooperation with its government and unifying efforts to fight terrorism, implement UNSC relevant resolutions, the latest of which is 2253.
