Syria blames recent surge in terror attacks on international inaction over support for terrorism
28 June، 2015


Damascus, SANA– Syria blamed a recent surge in terror attacks against Syrian cities and a number of world cities on the international inaction over the support provided by certain countries to terrorist activities.

A wave of terrorist attacks has recently rocked Syrian cities including Daraa, Ayn al-Arab and others with the full backing of Turkey, Jordan, Israel, Saudi Arabia and Qatar. Elsewhere, Tunisia, Kuwait and Iraq have also come under similar attacks.

The dramatic spike in attacks is a “natural outcome” of the international silence over the conduct of the countries supporting terrorism which goes undeterred, the Foreign and Expatriates Ministry said in two letters addressed to the UN Secretary General and president of the UN Security Council on Sunday.

The letters considered that the attacks prove that Syria was right when it repeatedly warned of the dangers posed by terrorism that knows no boundaries, pressing for concentrated international efforts against ISIS and Jabhat al-Nusra which spearhead international terrorism.

The terrorist attacks in Syrian cities have claimed many lives and caused renewed waves of internally-displaced citizens who were forcefully driven out of their localities, said the letters.

Highlighting the Jordanian and Turkish hand in the terrorist attacks in the Syrian cities, the ministry spoke of disreputable operation rooms in Amman and Turkey from where Jordanian, Turkish, French, Saudi, Qatari, British and American commanders are conducting terror attacks.

The ministry cited recent statements by Saudi and Jordanian top officials, including the Saudi representative at the UN Human Rights Council and the Jordanian King in which the former pledged continued military support for terrorists and the latter declared his intention to arm Syrian and Iraqi tribes “in an unacceptable and blatant interference in the internal affairs” of the two countries.

In its letters, the ministry pressed for international action against the countries which are avowed supporters of terrorism, calling for cooperation with the Syrian government which has been fighting terrorism for over four years in defense of its citizens.

Concluding the letters, the ministry pointed to the futility of the “declared war on terrorism” that has been going on for over a year, indicating that it has failed to achieve any of its stated goals, instead allowing ISIS and Jabhat al-Nusra to further spread, not only in Syria and Iraq, but also Kuwait and Tunisia.
