Foreign Ministry: The Israeli assault on Syria is blatant violation of UNSC resolutions

Damascus, SANA – Syria stressed on Wednesday that the Israeli aggression on its territories is a blatant violation of UNSC Resolution No. 350 for the year 1974 on Separation of Forces Agreement, as this aggression comes in the framework of the constant Israeli attempts to prolong the crisis in Syria and the war of terrorism and to raise the morale of the remnants of terrorists.

In two identical letters sent to the UN Secretary General and Head of the Security Council, Foreign and Expatriates Ministry said that authorities of the Israeli occupation launched on 25th of December, 2018 a new assault on territories of the Syrian Arab Republic in a flagrant violation of UNSC Resolution NO. 350 through targeting several military and civil positions in Damascus and its countryside with missiles, adding that the assault coincided with a time when streets were crowded with civilians celebrating Christmas for the first time after Damascus and its countryside were cleaned of terrorism.

The Ministry continued to say that the attempts of the authorities of the Israeli occupation to terrify the Syrian people in a holy day constitutes conclusive evidence that what “Israel” is doing is not different from what the terrorist organizations of Daesh and Jabhat al-Nusra do, as the authorities of the Israeli occupation has moved to a new stage practicing the terror of state directly after its agents (the terrorist groups) were defeated.

The Ministry continued to say that the Syrian Arab Republic stresses that Israel would not have continued to take its dangerous and aggressive approach without the continuous unlimited support by the US Administration.

The Ministry concluded by saying that Syria demands the UN Security Council all over again to assume its responsibilities in keeping international peace and security and adopting prompt and firm measures to prevent the repetition of the Israeli attacks, as it demands it to obligate “Israel” to respect its resolutions related to Separation of Forces Agreement.
