Damascus, SANA – The Foreign and Expatriates Ministry affirmed on Friday that the Israeli aggression on the Syrian territory is part of a long series of Israeli aggressions against the sovereignty and independence of Syria and the sanctity of its territory, and that such attacks would not have happened without the direct support of the outgoing US administration and the French and British leaderships.
In two letters sent to the UN Secretary General and the head of the UN Security Council about the new Israeli aggression on Mazzeh military airport west of Damascus, the Ministry said that Israel launched another treacherous aggression on the Syrian Arab Republic just after midnight on Friday, and this aggression is part a long series of Israeli attacks since the beginning of the terrorist war on the sovereignty, territorial integrity, and independence of Syria, adding that these attacks have been planned by the Israeli, French, and British intelligence agencies and their agents in Saudi Arabia, Turkey, Qatar, and other countries that wanted to impose control and hegemony on Syria and the region.
The Ministry said that in this context the Israeli aircrafts fired a large number of missiles from Lake Tiberias area which landed in the surroundings of al-Mazzeh airport at 12:25 AM, causing a fire to erupt, pointing out that these attacks would not have happened without the direct support of the outgoing US administration and the French and British leaderships.
The Ministry said that all the Israeli attacks on Syria coincided with defeats for the armed terrorist groups, mainly the large defeat that affected Jabhat al-Nusra and its allies in the east of Aleppo and after the reconciliations which led to the exit of terrorists from areas surrounding Damascus and other Syrian areas, which shattered the dreams of Israel and its Western allies and its Saudi and Qatari agents.
The letters said that the desperate and declared Israeli support for the terrorist organizations makes it a partner in the killing of Syrians and the destruction of their achievements and this support confirms that terrorism and Israel are two sides of the same coin.
The Ministry affirmed that the blatant Israeli role in the terrorist war on Syria makes it imperative for the international community and the Secretariat of the United Nations and the UN Security Council to take immediate action to punish the Israeli aggressor and prevent such attacks from being repeated, as their disastrous impact isn’t limited to attacking the Syrian sovereignty and defying the UN Security Council and General Assembly resolutions, but they also manifest as direct Israeli support for terrorist organizations in Syria.
The Ministry said that Syria reiterates its warning to Israel to stop launching aggressions and affirms that it will not stop its commitment to implementing the UNSC resolutions related to combating terrorism, including resolution no. 2253, adding that Syria will spare no effort to reach a peaceful resolution for the crisis.
