Damascus, Syria has strongly condemned the hostile practices of the US occupation forces in al-Jazeera area, asserting that they represent blatant violation of the Syrian sovereignty and territorial integrity and safety, and a flagrant breach of the international law, renewing its call for an immediate and unconditioned withdrawal of these forces from its lands.
In a letter addressed to UN Secretary General and President of Security Council on Wednesday on the aggressive movements of the US occupation forces in al-Jazeera area, northeast of Syria, the Foreign and Expatriates Ministry said that “the Syrian Arab Republic expressed strong condemnation on the almost daily hostile practices of the US forces within the areas which they have occupied in the Syrian al-Jazeera.”
During the past years, almost daily hostile movements by the US occupation forces have been monitored, including systematic looting operations of the Syrian resources, agricultural crops and oil from the Syrian al-Jazeera, in addition to bringing in huge military reinforcement, logistic equipment , various kinds of weapons, tools and military vehicles from Iraq to the some of the US illegitimate military bases in the countryside of al-Yaroubiya town in Hasaka province via the illegitimate al-Waleed crossing, the Ministry affirmed.
It indicated that those aggressive movements have been done almost daily in full ignorance of the UN Security Council’s Resolutions which have always emphasized the necessity of respecting Syria’s sovereignty, independence and territorial integrity.
The Ministry stressed that these movements and aggressive behavior by the US occupation forces come at the time when the Donald Trump’s current dishonest administration is leaving, which has worked on destabilizing Syria and supported the separatist movements and encouraged them with the aim of dividing Syria and preventing a political solution in it.
It reiterated that the facts on the ground proved completely the opposite as the Us administration has provided limitless support to the extremist terrorists in Syria, worked on creating and managing chaos to hinder any political solution in Syria in serving the Zionist project and imposing hegemony on the countries of the region.
It asserted that the latest statements by the US officials at Trump’s administration showed with the definitive evidence the volume of lies by this administration and the nature of its destructive and aggressive goals which it has worked to achieve over the previous years of the continued aggression on Syria and which showed at the same time its intensive hostility to the Syrian people .
The Syrian Arab republic stresses that what the US occupation forces are doing represent a flagrant aggression of the Syrian sovereignty, territorial integrity and safety and a blatant breach of the international law and the UN Security Council’s resolutions related to Syria, including the Resolution no. 2254, the Ministry reiterated.
Therefore, Syria, based on its respect to the international law and the UN Charter, calls for stopping these US heinous aggressive practices and calls upon the international community to condemn the US movements and continued occupation of the Syrian lands and its imposition of the unilateral coercive economic measures with the aim of starving the Syrian people, the Ministry asserted.
Syria also calls upon the international community to move to put an end to the arrogance and hostile approach and end this occupation of the Syrian territories, the Ministry went on saying.
The Ministry pointed out that the continuation of these US policies in the coming phase will pose a challenge to the will of the international community and prolonging the bloodshed and instability in Syria.
The Ministry concluded by saying that Syria affirms that its people and army who have achieved the bravest resilience and victories against the takfiri terrorism and the tools of the US project are more resolute and determined on foiling the renewable conspiracy, ending all forms of US presence and its tools and agents in Syria, establishing control over all the Syrian territories, preserving Syria’s sovereignty, territorial integrity and unity of its people, renewing its call for immediate and unconditioned withdrawal of the US occupation forces and their allies from the Syrian territories.
