Damascus, SANA – The Regional Leadership of Baath Arab Socialist Party (BASP) strongly condemned Turkey’s flagrant transgression into the Syrian territory earlier today.
Not waiting for Syria’s consent, the Turkish authorities transgressed into the Syrian territory at dawn and relocated the reputed tomb of Suleyman Shah from the northeastern Raqqa province where it existed.
The act was regarded by the Foreign Ministry as yet another proof the Turkish government’s close connection with the terrorist organizations operating in the area where the tomb was, including the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) .
The BASP Leadership affirmed in a statement that this new move is a continuation of Turkey’s approach of supporting the terrorist gangs, providing them with shelter, weapons, funds, training and access into Syria across the border.
This Turkish violation against Syria’s sovereignty, the statement added, is a flagrant breach of the international will and relevant resolutions of UN Security Council, as it is an act of aggression against a neighboring country.
The statement denounced the attitudes and practices of the neo-Ottomans, and stressed that they demand a clear condemnation from all powers and peoples that defend peace and the principles of good neighborliness.
