Syria called on the UN on Tuesday to “break the silence” and act against crimes committed by US-led in Syria.
In a letter delivered to the UN Secretary General and UNSC President, Syria’s Foreign Ministry described as “henious crime” the US-led coalition’s strikes on al-Shafa village in Deir Ezzor which killed more than 60 people
The strikes in Deir Ezzor Province “are ample proof of the total breakdown of human fundamental values and moral principles principles that the nations have agreed to respect since the establishment of the United Nations.”
The Ministry stressed the underestimation of countries of this “notorious ‘Coalition’ in the lives of innocent civilians and the provisions of International Law.”
The Syrian Foreign Ministry also called upon the UN-Secretary General and the Security Council to assume their responsibilities through taking immediate steps to halt these assaults and massacres, and to adopt whatever is required for establishing an international neutral independent mechanism for investigating these crimes and punishing their perpetrators.
“The assaults of the criminal Coalition and its continuous bloody aggression against the innocent civilians have become deliberate and constant where various kinds of internationally banned and indiscriminate weapons of mass destruction, such as white phosphorus bombs, are being used.”
“The Syrian Arab Republic stresses that the continuous silence of the UNSC on the crimes and their perpetrators will encourage the aggressive states to continue to kill the Syrian civilians and destroy their properties as it will put the UNSC and the UN General Assembly in a state of complete disability to meet their responsibilities shouldered on them by the UN Charter and their main organs,” the Ministry concluded its statement.
