Damascus, SANA- The People’s Assembly affirmed that what the US and its allies are doing of supporting and funding terrorism is a desperate attempt to change the firm stances of Syria towards the Palestinian cause, and that the terrorist war waged against the country is the extension of the ill-fated Balfour Declaration.
On the 102nd anniversary of the ill-fated Balfour Declaration, the People’s Assembly affirmed in a statement that the Balfour Declaration constitutes a black day in the history of the Palestinian people, the Arab nation and the history of humanity as a whole and a strong blow to the international justice and legitimacy.
The statement added that Balfour Declaration is a flagrant violation of the rights of the Palestinian people, indicating that the hostile, racist and terrorist practices of the Israeli occupation entity against the Palestine people aim at suppressing their resistance and subjugating them and abolishing their existence.
The People’s Assembly added that attacking the Islamic and Christian sanctities by the Israeli occupation entity is a desperate attempt to impost unjust dictations on the Palestinian people and a blatant violation of the international law and its principles.
The statement read that what has taken place and what is taking place nowadays in Syria and the region is an extension of the ill-fated Balfour Declaration , and what the US and its colonial allies, and the Zionists are doing of supporting and funding terrorism and their practices of systematic destruction come in a desperate attempt to change the principled and firm stances of Syria towards the Palestinian cause and its adherence to liberating every inch of all the occupied Arab territories.
The Assembly clarified that Syria will remain a supporter of the historical rights of the Palestinian people and will continue to consider the Palestinian cause as a central cause and the essence of the Arab national struggle, affirming that the Syrian Arab Army will remain a solid rock which will foil all conspiracies hatched against its country.
