Syria strongly condemns the false allegations and misleading campaign included in a statement by the French Foreign Ministry regarding what it described as the anniversary of the liberation of Raqqa, an official source at Foreign and Expatriates Ministry said Sunday.
“The entire world has witnessed the systematic destruction of Raqqa city by the so-called International Coalition and the rotten bodies of innocent civilians in the streets and the displacement of the rest of its inhabitants which amounts to crimes of genocide, at a time when safe corridors were opened for evacuating Islamic State (ISIS) terrorists under the protection of the US-French coalition forces to use them elsewhere in order to complicate and prolong the crisis in Syria to serve the agendas of the colonial West,” the source said.
The source added that the support, talked about by the French statement, which is provided to some groups in Syria, is very clear evidence of the sinister and destructive policy adopted by the French Government towards Syria.
The Foreign Ministry source said that what happened in Raqqa brings shame to France and reminds us of its colonialist history which is full of crimes against people.
The source demanded that France unveil the French campaign of lies that defames the reputation of their country.
