Syria reiterated its demands for the Security Council to take action against the crimes and attacks carried out by the warplanes of the US-led international coalition, to carry out an international investigation into these attacks, and to work towards preventing them and end the hostile presence of American and other foreign forces in Syria.
This came in two letters from the Foreign and Expatriates Ministry addressed to the UN Secretary General and Chairman of the Security Council, regarding the most recent massacre committed by the warplanes of the US-led international coalition against a camp for civilians in al-Baghouz village in the countryside of Deir Ezzor.
In the letters, the Ministry said this new crime, which left more than 70 civilians dead or injured including women and children, is part of a series of war crimes and crimes against humanity perpetrated by the coalition against the Syrian people.
The Ministry slammed the coalition for its continuous support to terrorism and its use of the terrorists and separatist militias to achieve its objectives and hostile plots against the sovereignty, unity, and territorial integrity of Syria.
“Syria demands again that the Security Council take action to prevent these crimes and attacks and shoulder its responsibility for preserving international peace and security,” the letters said.
The letters stated that the Security Council is also required to conduct an international investigation into the coalition’s crimes in Syria, condemn them, and take immediate action to prevent their repetition, in addition to working on ending the illegitimate hostile presence of the American troops and other foreign troops in the Syrian territory to prevent them from implementing their schemes.
