(AhlulBayt News Agency) - Syria strongly condemned the crimes committed by the US-led “international coalition” against Syrian civilians in Deir Ezzor.
The condemnation came in a letter sent on Thursday by the Foreign and Expatriates Ministry to the UN Secretary-General and the President of the Security Council on the new massacre committed by the US-led “international coalition” in the village of al-Jurze Sharqi in the eastern countryside of Deir Ezzor province.
The Ministry said that the US-led coalition, who committed this horrible crime, had always pretended to fight ISIS terrorist organization while the fact is that this coalition transferred terrorists to secured sites, adding that eradicating ISIS was achieved by Syrian Arab Army and its allies.
In the letter, the Ministry also condemned turning a blind eye for the massacres committed by the “international coalition” in the provinces of Raqqa and Deir Ezzor by those who claim concern about the rule of law, human rights and international humanitarian law.
The Ministry said that the success of Syrian Arab Army and its allies in eradicating ISIS terrorist organization and expelling it from the main cities in Deir Ezzor has foiled the attempts of the coalition who had always pretended to fight ISIS while the fact is that this coalition transferred terrorists to secured sites.
The letter read that Syria considers the countries which take part in this coalition as connivers in its crimes and massacres if they didn’t distance themselves from such acts, noting to the suspicious and dangerous role of this coalition in supporting terrorism and attacking the Syrian people which is confirmed by the recent events and many reports and aerial photos that prove the deals and coordination between the coalition and its militias on the ground on the one hand and ISIS on the other.
The Ministry concluded its letter by saying that the UN Security Council has not yet taken any action to stop the coalition’s attacks on the Syrian Arab Republic and the innocent civilian population of the region as a result of the misleading practiced by the United States and its allies who falsely claim that they are fighting ISIS while the truth shows the opposite.
On Wednesday, the aircrafts of the US-led coalition bombarded the residential neighborhoods of al-Jurze Sharqi village in the eastern countryside of Deir Ezzor province, calming the lives of 23 civilians, 8 children and 6 women among them, and causing massive destruction to locals’ properties and the village’s infrastructure.
