Syria affirmed its continued support for the Palestinian people, holding the Israeli occupation entity accountable for the “aggressive escalation” in the Gaza Strip.
An official source at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Expatriates said in a statement on Saturday that “the continuation of the Israeli aggressive, terrorist, criminal acts against innocent civilians in the occupied Palestine, especially in the Gaza Strip demonstrates once again that Israel is a brutal racist occupation entity”.
“The Israeli occupation commit crimes and exercise terrorism against the Palestinians who are the owners of the land and have all the right to live in security, peace and dignity,” the statement added.
Syria reiterated its continued support and standing by the Palestinian brothers who defend their right in life and freedom and calls on all Palestinians to unite to confront these Israeli attacks, read the statement.
The statement further noted that the lack of interest by the international community in avoiding the shedding of the blood of Palestinian children, women and the elderly reflects the complicity with the aggression and the disregard for all the values of International Law and the Charter of the United Nations.
The source added that Syria holds the Israeli entity responsible for this dangerous escalation and demands that the Israeli officials be held accountable for committing war crimes and crimes against humanity.
