Syria recounts crimes of foreign-backed terrorists in letters to UN
Syria has written to the UN on the crimes perpetrated against the country by the terror groups backed by Israel, Saudi Arabia, Turkey and Qatar, saying terrorism would only be eradicated if those countries dropped their support for the militants.
Syria’s Foreign and Expatriates Ministry recounted the atrocities of the foreign-sponsored militants on Thursday in two letters sent to UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon and the world body’s Security Council, the official Syrian Arab News Agency reported.
On the back of foreign support, Takfiri terrorists recently killed 17 people and injured 27 women and children in a single day in Syria, the letters read.
The letters further said the bloodshed did not move the terror supporters, who “boast of their civilization and respect for human rights,” to offer as much as an apology.
In another act of violence, Saudi-backed Jaish al-Islam terror outfit shelled the countryside of the capital Damascus, killing one and injuring three others, according to the letters.
The letters further said the regime in Israel is an ally of Jabhat Fateh al-Sham, formerly known as al-Nusra Front, the second most brutal Takfiri terror group ravaging Syria after Daesh.
The alliance, the letters said, came to light after Israeli forces struck the Haddar town on the Syrian side of the Tel Aviv-occupied Golan Heights, killing nine civilians.
The Turkish-backed Nour-Eddin al-Zniki Takfiri group along with other terror outfits, which are all allied with Jabhat Fateh al-Sham, hit Aleppo University’s campus housing displaced people and students, killing six people and injuring 20 others.
