TEHRAN (Iran News) – While the world is busy with inflation, fuel and food issues, Israel continues its crimes in the Middle East once in Palestine and now in Syria and no international body or country tries to stop this killing machine.
The Islamic Republic of Iran has been the only country in the world which has repeatedly reacted to the Zionist regime’s crimes during the international bodies’ meetings and it needs more support at least from the independent countries against this criminal regime which has expanded its crimes nowadays to Syria.
The Zionist regime in recent weeks and under different false claims have attacked on Syria saying that they were bombing where Iranian forces are deployed while it is a really baseless claim.
On Friday, Iran said the international community, particularly the United Nations Security Council, must fulfill their responsibility and put an end to the Israeli regime’s never-ending crimes against Syria.
Foreign Ministry spokesman Nasser Kanaani censured a brutal missile attack by the Israeli regime targeting the outskirts of the Syrian capital, Damascus, earlier in the day.
“The Zionist regime’s continuous aggression and attacks on Syria are a clear violation of the country’s sovereignty and territorial integrity and a flagrant violation of recognized international principles and regulations,” the Iranian spokesman said.
He slammed the “questionable silence” of responsible circles and organizations as well as those who claim to defend human rights over the Israeli regime’s illegal measures against Syria and expressed his sympathy with the Arab country’s government and nation, particularly the bereaved families of the latest attack on Damascus.
“The repeated attacks of the Zionist regime on Syria are a breach of this country’s sovereignty and territorial integrity and will help armed terrorists and maintain and strengthen their presence in Syria, which actually threatens the security of the region,” Kanaani said.
Syria’s Defense Ministry said in a statement that at least three Syrian soldiers were killed and seven more wounded in the Israeli strike targeting the outskirts of Damascus.
“The Israeli enemy carried out an air strike… from the direction of the occupied Syrian Golan, ” the ministry said, adding Syria’s air defense had managed to intercept some of the incoming projectiles.
Syria and the Israeli regime are technically at war due to the latter’s 1967-to-present occupation of the Arab country’s Golan Heights.
Israel maintains a significant military presence in the territory, which it uses as one of its launchpads for attacks on Syrian soil.
The regime’s attacks on Syria started to grow significantly in scale and frequency after 2011, when Syria found itself in the grip of rampant foreign-backed militancy and terrorism.
In two identical letters to the UN secretary general and the president of the Security Council, Syria confirmed the Israeli criminal acts of aggression using bursts of missiles from the direction of the occupied Syrian Golan targeting some points in the vicinity of Damascus, Syria’s official news agency SANA reported.
Damascus urged the UN and the Security Council to exercise their responsibilities under the United Nations Charter and condemn such Israeli aggression.
According to Syrian officials, the attacks are carried out in direct support of the armed terrorist organizations that spread murder across Syria.
The Israeli regime, along with the United States and their other Western and regional partners, has been a staunch supporter of the terror groups that have been operating against the Damascus government.
Meanwhile Iran’s envoy to the United Nations underscored global respect for Syria’s political sovereignty and territorial integrity in the provision of humanitarian aid to the war-ravaged Arab country, calling for the removal of unilateral Western sanctions on Damascus.
Majid Takht-Ravanchi made the remarks, saying Iran’s position on Syria’s humanitarian issue is “completely clear,” and that the Islamic Republic has always supported the United Nations and the international community in their efforts to assist Syria.
“We have frequently stated that the provision of humanitarian aid to Syria is critical and that political circumstances must not be allowed to prevent aid from reaching people in need,” Takht-Ravanchi said.
“This must be done in a manner that fully respects Syria’s political sovereignty, independence, unity, and territorial integrity and in compliance with the purposes and principles of the United Nations Charter,” he added.
The senior Iranian diplomat said the Islamic Republic welcomes the UN’s recent adoption of Resolution 2642 (2022) about the cross-border aid mechanism and considers it a crucial step toward addressing Syria’s urgent needs.
Takht-Ravanchi said Iran has reiterated that the cross-border aid delivery mechanism should be considered as an exceptional and temporary measure imposed by specific circumstances and that humanitarian aid to those in need must be delivered in cooperation and full coordination with the Syrian government and from within the Syrian territory as it would help to prevent the divergence of aid to unintended persons.
Stressing that the resolution sets out explicit demands for early recovery projects and increased transparency in relief efforts, he called on all parties to carefully adhere to the basic principles governing humanitarian assistance as well as to ensure neutrality and transparency.
As long as the world does not take a firm action against Israel, this criminal regime will continue its crimes in the Middle East or even in other parts of the world through terrorist acts, and the UN’s passiveness has emboldened this non-stop killing machine as the regime has made most of the current absolute attention of the world on Ukraine and consequences of war in this country which are food shortage, inflation and rise in fuel prices.
Syria is paying the price for its close ties with Iran and Russia and rejecting the West and Zionists and for this reason it is being attacked under any baseless pretext.
So it is time the UN to stand up and take a firm action in supporting the rights’ of independent countries which are invaded by the Zionists or their allies otherwise this killing machine will continue bloodshed through playing the victim.
