The Syrian government is hosting a forum to “confront the alliance between Zionism, the US and the reactionary Arab forces under Saudi leadership” in Damascus, held under the auspices of President Bashar al-Assad, the Syrian Arab News Agency (SANA) has announced.
The conference—which clearly spells out the players in the Middle East which pits the international Jewish lobby and its pro-Israeli proxies against Syria and its allies—will start this week, the SANA report said.
“Several national forces, parties and figures from Lebanon, Palestine, Jordan, Egypt, Iraq, Algeria, Bahrain, Yemen and Syria are participating in the forum, which will be held under the auspices of President Bashar al-Assad.”
SANA said that the forum “aims at drawing up a plan to confront the imperialist project and supporting the Palestinians’ resistance against the Israeli occupation.”
The conference will last two days, during which the participants will discuss the plan to repel the so-called “Middle East Alliance” which the US and Israel are creating to include a number of Arab reactionary forces, the leader of which is the Saudi Arabian regime, the report continued.
The forum also seeks to set up another “media plan” that covers various media fields, including social media, to raise awareness among the Arab public opinion of the reality of these projects and their catastrophic effects on the Arab nation, in addition to developing frameworks and strategies of cooperation in the field of boycotting the Zionist entity.
In a separate development, the Syrian government has also condemned the ongoing US airstrikes in Syria, saying that they are “war crimes” being “committed by the international US-led coalition against innocent civilians in the country.”
In a letter to the UN Secretary General and Head of the Security Council, the Syrian Foreign and Expatriates Ministry said that the international coalition’s “feverish quest to derail the victories of the Syrian Arab Army and its allies over Daesh (ISIS) terrorist organization, whether through its air force and agents on the ground, and the deals it makes with Daesh terrorists to attack positions of the Syrian army and its allies from sites where coalition forces are deployed, confirms the suspicious role of the coalition and the danger it poses to the real efforts aimed at fighting Daesh.”
The letter cited the latest of such attacks committed by the coalition’s planes last weekend which targeting residential sites in Tal al-Shaer area and al-Duwaiji village in Deir Ezzor. More than 10 civilians were killed and scores of others were injured, in addition to the massive material damage caused to the locals’ houses and properties.
The letter said that the coalition’s warplanes “also targeted a car transporting paramedics who tried to help injured people, leaving all those who were onboard dead.”
The Ministry added that many parties who claim to care for the rule of law and human rights turn a blind eye to the massacres committed by the coalition in the provinces of Raqqa and Deir Ezzor.
The Ministry concluded its letter by “renewing the Syrian government’s demand that the Security Council shoulder its main responsibility of preserving international peace and security and take immediate action to stop the brutal crimes committed by the illegal coalition against the innocent civilians and prevent more crimes from happening.”
