The Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Expatriates has asserted that Israel’s continuous engagement in criminal attacks serves as compelling evidence of its defeat and mounting anxiety. This is a direct consequence of Syria’s unwavering determination to withstand all efforts to weaken it and divert its attention from supporting the Palestinian people in their struggle to reclaim their homeland.
In a recent statement, the ministry highlighted that, for the third time within a single week, at 5:25 a.m. on Sunday, October 22, the Israeli occupation entity launched an aerial assault using missiles from the Mediterranean Sea and the occupied Syrian Golan. The targets of this assault were the Damascus and Aleppo International Airports, tragically resulting in the loss of a civilian’s life, injuries to another individual, and extensive damage to the runways of both airports. Consequently, these vital transport hubs were rendered inoperative once again, despite previous repairs following recent aggression that had enabled the resumption of civilian air traffic.
The ministry further underscored that Israel’s persistence in these criminal attacks underscores its sense of defeat. This heightened aggression can be attributed to Syria’s steadfastness in the face of all attempts made by Israel and terrorist forces to undermine its position. These efforts aim to divert Syria from its commitment to supporting the Palestinians in their quest to regain their land. Additionally, Syria remains determined to reclaim the occupied Syrian Golan and withstand the unilateral coercive measures imposed by Western countries on the Syrian people. Furthermore, the ministry denounced Israel’s actions as constituting war crimes against humanity, especially during its devastating conflict with the people of Gaza.
The ministry asserted that Israel’s backers have once again demonstrated their willingness to exploit international law and its conventions to advance their colonial ambitions, often under false pretexts. In response to these developments, the Syrian Arab Republic has issued a stern warning about the potential consequences of continued attacks and practices that violate international humanitarian law. Such actions could escalate tensions in the region and lead to a broader cycle of violence.
In summary, the ongoing Israeli aggressions against Syria underline a sense of desperation and anxiety on Israel’s part. Syria remains resolute in its commitment to support the Palestinian cause and reclaim its own territory, despite facing external pressures and hostilities. The international community is urged to take notice of these developments and work towards a peaceful resolution to prevent further escalation in the region.
