Damascus, SANA – Syria asserted on Thursday that the entry of 150 US troops into Syrian territory is totally rejected and illegitimate.
“We received with deep concern the news that 150 US troops have entered the Syrian territory into Rmeilan area,” an official source at the Foreign and Expatriates Ministry said in a statement to SANA.
The source expressed Syria’s strong condemnation of this move, dismissing it as a “blatant act of aggression that constitutes a dangerous intervention and a gross violation of the Syrian sovereignty.”
“This intervention is rejected and illegitimate, and it happened without the Syrian government’s approval,” the source said, reiterating that this move transgresses against the international laws and conventions as it is a “direct attack” that violates the Syrian territory.
While stressing its total rejection of this act of aggression, Syria calls on the international community to take all necessary measures to stop it, the source noted.
