Geneva, SANA-Syria affirmed that the Israeli occupation authorities’ escalation of the pace of work in the scheme to build wind turbines in the occupied Syrian Golan, through the increase in the number of these turbines and the expansion of land seize operations to set them up, constitutes a blatant violation of human rights and international humanitarian law.
“Syria has repeatedly warned of the health and environmental risks of this settlement scheme for the people of the occupied Syrian Golan as this reflects stubbornness of the Israeli occupation in implementing a systematic discriminatory settlement policy relentlessly in the occupied Syrian Golan and against its people, in violation of all relevant United Nations resolutions adopted by its various agencies represented by the General Assembly, the Security Council, the Economic and Social Council and the Human Rights Council, including In that resolution issued by the Human Rights Council at its 49th regular round , entitled (Human Rights in the Occupied Syrian Golan). ” Syria’s Permanent Representative to the UN in Geneva, Ambassador Hussam Eddin Ala, said in a letter addressed to the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights, Michelle Bachelet.
Ambassador Ala pointed out that the Israeli occupation authorities’ pursuit of this scheme despite its catastrophic consequences and its resort to repression and intimidation to achieve this prove once again the policies of the occupation authorities to create a new status on the ground with the aim of consolidating their occupation of the Syrian Golan and the establishment of the illegal policy of annexation, changing the status of the occupied lands and inflicting damages to them, which will destroy any future opportunities to establish a just and comprehensive peace based on ending the occupation and Israel’s complete withdrawal from the Palestinian territories, including East Jerusalem, and the Syrian Golan occupied since 1967, in implementation of the relevant Security Council resolutions, in particular Resolutions 242 of 1967 and 337 of 1973 and Resolution 497 of 1981, according to which the Security Council decided that Israel’s declaration to impose its laws, judicial and administrative jurisdiction on the occupied Syrian Golan is null and void and has no international legal effect.
