Occupied Syrian Golan, SANA – The Syrian people in the occupied Golan are staging a general strike in rejection of the Israeli occupation authorities’ exercises and their transgressions against the locals who rejected the so-called “local councils elections” as being a new step towards Judaizing the Golan.
SANA reporter in Quneitra said that the Syrian people in the occupied Golan are staging a general strike in the villages of Majdal Shams, Boqatha, Mas’ada, and Ain Qania in rejection of the practices of the Israeli occupation authorities aiming at Judaizing the occupied Golan and annexing it.
The strike also comes as a condemnation of the barbaric attacks on the Syrian people in Golan who prevented holding the “local councils elections” which the occupation authorities attempts to impose on the Syrians in Golan.
Israeli occupation forces had attacked the protesters in Golan with live rounds and gas grenades in an attempt to disperse them by force, injuring several protesters and causing the suffocation of many civilians, including elderly people, women, and children.
The reporter clarified that all schools in the aforementioned villages were closed and markets were shut all over the occupied Golan.
On Tuesday, hundreds of Syrians gathered at al-Alam Roundabout in Quneitra City in solidarity with the Syrian people in occupied Syrian Golan and in support of their national stances in rejection of the so-called “local councils elections.”
In two identical letters directed to the UN Secretary General and UNSC President, the Syrian Foreign and Expatriates Ministry said that the occupation authorities’ attempts to hold the aforementioned elections on 30/10/2018 in the villages of the occupied Syria Golan contradict UN resolutions and the Geneva agreements on territories under control of occupation.
