Acting Charge d’ affairs of Syria’s permanent delegation to the UN Munzer Munzer said on Tuesday that Syria affirms that its sovereign right to the Syrian Golan is not negotiable and can’t be relinquished, nor is it subject to limitations, adding “our occupied territory should be fully restored.”
Munzer added, during a UN Security Council session on the situation in the Middle East, that the targeting of a Syrian warplane by Israel, which was being used to target Islamic State terrorist around the al-Yarmouk valley, shows the solid relationship that Israel has with terrorist groups.
Munzer said that Syria has informed Security Council and the UN’s different bodies of the unlimited support offered by Israel to terrorist organizations in the disengagement zone, including its repeated direct military aggression on Syrian lands in a blatant violation of the disengagement agreement and international laws.
“The policies of countries that support Israel have contributed to changing the occupied Palestine into a collective, open prison and paved the way for Israel to apply the policy of racial apartheid against the Palestinians,” Munzer affirmed.
He went on to say that Syria calls on the international community to assume its responsibility and abort the so-called “Jewish National State” law, which contradicts the UN’s principles and usurps the historical firm rights of the Palestinian people, including their right to return.
He added that Israel’s untrue allegations that it has no role in the crisis in Syria is refuted by its direct support to terrorist organizations and its continued aggression against Syria, as well, its smuggling of hundreds of “White Helmet” terrorists.
