DAMASCUS - 21 October 2017: Syria on Saturday condemned a new Israeli aggression on al-Quneitra countryside, considering it as a new cycle of outright collusion between the Israeli occupation and armed terrorist groups and a desperate attempt to support these groups, the Syrian news agency SANA reported.
In two letters addressed to the United Nations Secretary General and President of the Security Council, the Syrian Foreign Ministry stressed that Syria again warns of the serious repercussions of such repeated aggressive acts which support terrorism and its criminal organizations.
The Israeli aggression, the letter said, targeted a military site in Quneitra Countryside in a blatant violation of the Separation of Forces Agreement, it said.
It added that the aggression came after terrorists linked to Israel had launched mortar shells, upon the instructions of the Israeli occupation, on an area of empty land inside the occupied territories to give the Israeli enemy a pretext to carry out its aggression.
The new aggression leaves no doubt as to the links between the Israeli occupation and terrorist organizations as facts and incidents add up to prove this, said the ministry.
The attack is a desperate attempt to shore up terrorist groups, including Daesh and al-Nusra, which have received heavy blows by the Syrian Arab Army, the letters added.
Syria is surprised over the UN Security Council’s inability to stop and condemn the Israeli attacks which constitute a flagrant violation of the principles of UN Charter, the rules of international law and all relevant resolutions issued by them, the ministry said, urging the UN Security council to take decisive steps to put an end to such repeated aggression.
