Jaafari: Some U.N. Members Adopting Wrong Approach on Terrorism

Syria’s permanent representative to the United Nations, Bashar al-Jaafari, said that the United Nations’ bodies and some of its member states adopt the wrong approach in implementing the U.N. Security Council resolutions on combating terrorism.

His comments came in a press release entitled “Random death targets innocent civilians in Damascus on the eve of Mother’s Day,” distributed by Syria’s permanent mission to member states and media correspondents at the United Nations, about the targeting with rocket shells of the public market of Kashkoul al-Amara neighborhood and other areas of Damascus.

“The city of Damascus and other Syrian cities have been living for seven years in a daily nightmare of random death and destruction,” Jaafari said, indicating to the unbearable escalation of these attacks by the armed terrorist groups backed by the governments of certain countries, on top of which are the United States, Britain, France, Saudi Arabia, Qatar and Turkey, which brand these groups as “moderate armed opposition.”

He said that the systematic behavior of these countries’ representatives lacks a minimal sense of human empathy, and their policies are definitely devoid of any moral sense, let alone any sense of respect for the international law and international humanitarian law.

On Wednesday, the terrorist gangs targeted with a rocket attack the densely populated Kashkoul neighborhood in Jaramana, in the Damascus countryside, the Al-Amara neighborhood and other areas of the capital, leaving 44 martyrs and wounding scores others.
