Syria Demands Halt to Illegal US-led Attacks after 35 Civilians Killed

Syria has called for the halt of the US-led international coalition’s illegal attacks on the country.

Alwaght- Syria has called for the halt of the US-led international coalition’s illegal attacks on the country.

The call was made on Saturday by the Syrian Foreign Ministry after the US-led coalition’s warplanes targeted al-Mayadeen city in Deir Ezzor countryside claiming the lives of 35 civilians.

The British-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, however, put the death toll at 106, including 42 children.

In two letters sent by the Syrian Foreign Ministry to the UN Secretary General and the President of Security Council, the Ministry said that the illegal US-led coalition warplanes shelled on Friday the city of al-Mayadeen in the southeastern countryside of Deir Ezzor province, killed 35 civilians, the majority of whom were women and children, in addition to injuring scores of people.

The Ministry said that the new assault was part of a series of attacks carried out by the illegal international coalition against Syria’s sovereignty and territorial integrity under the pretext of combating terrorism, while the actions of this alliance only contribute to spreading chaos and destruction which benefits the extremist terrorist organizations, particularly ISIS and al-Nusra Front terror organizations.

The letters said that taking into account the fact that the coalition’s actions blatantly contradict the UN Security Council’s resolutions, international law, and international humanitarian law, Syria reiterates the aggressive nature of this coalition and its support for parties that want only to kill innocent Syrian civilians, noting that the coalition admitted that hundreds of innocent Syrians were killed during the past months under pretexts that proved to be invalid.

The Ministry said that Syria condemns the attacks of the alliance which target civilians and cause massive material damage to the infrastructure, facilities, and properties in Syria, calling on the Security Council to implement its resolutions on preserving the integrity of Syria’s territory and people and stop the attacks of the illegal coalition, noting that these attacks coincide with attacks by ISIS and al-Nusra, and that the coalition also attacks the Syrian Army which if fighting terrorism.

The letters emphasized that some western permanent members have dominated the Security Council, particularly when it comes to the implementation of its decisions regarding Syria, along with the misleading and deceptive methods employed by countries such as France, Britain, and the United States, are the main factors in prolonging the crisis in Syria, affirming that these policies along with the practices of regional states like Saudi Arabia, Qatar, and Turkey further escalate the crisis in Syria and support terrorism, the same terrorism that targets other areas in the world like the recent attack in Manchester.

Syria has reiterated the importance of halting the illegal US-led coalition’s actions and implementing Security Council resolutions related to counter-terrorism, including resolution no. 2253.
