Syria Calls for U.N. Sanctions on ’israel’ over Strikes
Syria asked the United Nations Security Council on Monday to impose sanctions on the Zionist entity, a day after it bombed areas near Damascus international airport and in the town of Dimas, near the border with Lebanon.
In a letter to U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon and Chad, Security Council president for December, Syria, said that “such aggressions will not stop it from fighting terrorism in all its forms and manifestation across the entire territory of Syria.”
“At the same time, the Syrian Arab Republic calls on the international community and the Security Council to shoulder their responsibility and forcefully condemn this brutal attack and to cease covering it up under any pretext,” the letter read.
“Syria also calls for the imposition of stern sanctions against Israel … and requests that all measures prescribed under the Charter of the United Nations should be taken to prevent Israel from again committing such aggressions,” it said.
Syria also accused the Zionist entity of carrying out the air strikes to “cover up internal Israeli divisions and draw attention away from the collapse of the Israeli coalition Government and Israel’s extreme policies, particularly its continued occupation of Arab territory.”
Last week, the United Nations revealed the extent of the Zionist support for armed terrorist groups operating in Syria.
