FM: Syria demands Security Council act to stop war crimes committed by rogue international alliance against Syrians

Damascus, SANA – The Foreign and Expatriates Ministry asserted that the international alliance’s persistence in committing massacres against the Syrian people and supporting the remnants of Daesh (ISIS) terror organization and restructuring them as separatist militias working for Washington confirms that this rogue alliance’s only goal is to undermine Syria’s sovereignty, unity, and territorial integrity and to prolong the crisis.

In a letter addressed on Tuesday to the UN Secretary-General and the head of the Security Council, the Ministry said that this letter follows up on tens of letters detailing the massacres committed by the so-called international alliance against Syrians, the most recent dated February 21st.

The letter said that the US-led alliance committed two new massacres against Syrian civilians on Sunday February 25th, 2019, when its warplanes bombarded the homes of civilians in al-Shaafa and Dhahret Alouni villages in the eastern countryside of Deir Ezzor province, martyring 29 civilians and inflicting severe injuries on tens of others, most of them women and children, in addition to causing damage to civilians’ homes, properties, and infrastructure in the villages.

The Ministry said that the alliance’s persistence in committing countless massacres against the Syrian people, and its support for the remnants of Daesh and efforts to restructure them as separatist militias working for the US in Hasaka, Raqqa, and Deir Ezor provinces confirms that this rogue alliance’s only goal is to undermine Syria’s sovereignty, unity, and territorial integrity and to prolong the crisis in Syria.

“The Syrian Arab Republic demands that the Security Council shoulder its responsibility of preserving international peace and security and act immediately to stop the war crimes and the crimes against humanity committed by this alliance’s against the Syrian people and ensure that they do not reoccur,” the Ministry said.

The letter concluded by asserting that Syria demands ending the illegal presence of US forces on Syrian soil and preventing the US from implementing its suspicious plans that seek to divide Syria and plunder its resources, saying that this most recent crime and the crime of demolishing Raqqa city uncover the true face of the US administration’s policies, policies that must be condemned and exposed.
