Foreign Ministry: Israel’s Arbitrary detention of Syrian citizens in Golan new violation of human rights

Damascus, SANA-Foreign and Expatriates Ministry called on UN Security Council to take necessary legal procedures to carry out its resolutions on the Israeli withdrawal from the whole occupied Syrian Golan to the line of June 4th, 1967 and press the occupation’s authorities to immediately release the Syrian detainees from their prisons.

“In a new proof on Israel’s violations of all international conventions and laws, particularly the international human law, and in continuation of its aggressive and provocative polices against our citizens in the occupied Syria Golan, and after several days of arresting the Syrian freedom fighter Sidqi al-Makt.. the Israeli occupation’s authorities detained today Sheikh Atef Darwish from Baka’ata and Fidaa Majed al-Shaer from Majdal Shams village, confiscating their personal properties, including mobile phones and PC computers in a new violation of Geneva 4th convention of 1949,” the Ministry said in two identical letters sent to UN Secretary General and President of the Security Council on Monday.

The letter added that the Government of the Syrian Arab Republic affirms once again that the policy of arbitrary detention adopted by the Israeli occupation authorities comes within a series of crimes and violations of human rights perpetrated by Israel against the Syrian citizens in the occupied Syrian Golan during five decades of its occupation.

“Syria calls on UN Secretary General, Security Council and High Commissioner  for Human rights to press Israel to immediately release, unconditionally, all Syrian detainees in its prisons and detentions, and calls on Security Council to take  the necessary and legal procedures for the Israeli withdrawal from the whole occupied Syrian Golan into the line of June 4th, 1967,” the Ministry said.

It hoped this letter would be considered as an official document  at UN Security Council and General Assembly under relevant items.
