The Syrian Foreign Ministry has notified the United Nations that the Israeli airstrikes against Syria are possible only with US support and with immunity “silently” approved by some other members of the UN Security Council, the ministry’s press service said Monday.

“Such attacks are possible only thanks to the unlimited support provided by the US administration, the immunity from investigations extended to Israel by a number of countries in the UN Security Council, as well as the complete silence regime that these countries have imposed in the UN Security Council to prevent this body from fulfilling its role in repelling these criminal attacks,” the ministry said in letters sent to the UN Secretary-General and the UNSC President.

Israel has been carrying out strikes on alleged Iranian targets in Syria for two days in a row. According to the Russian military, the Syrian air defence forces destroyed over 30 cruise missiles and guided bombs for that period of time.

Following the attacks, Iranian Air Force Commander Brigadier General Aziz Nasirzadeh stated that Iran was “ready to fight against Israel and eliminate it from the Earth.”
Israel has repeatedly accused Iran of having a military presence in Syria, as well as suspected attempts to build a base there.

However, Tehran has strongly refuted the claims, insisting that its military presence in the country is limited to sending military advisors at Damascus’ request to help fight terrorists.

Actually, the immunity comes from 3 points : – UN-Charter is violated by both Iran and (unfortunately) Syria which had few other choices as they needed help to fight the Qatar-Turkey proxy war on Syria. – UNSC res.1701 allow ANY UN state to act in order to disarm Hezbollah and prevent transfers of weapons to them. Note that res.1701 was voted at the UNANIMITY of UNSC! In other terms, Hezbollah’s armed branch, as all other Lebanese militias too (these all accepted the res.1701 and disarmed) in UN-banned since 2006. – Hague Convention is violated by Iran since they support armed… Read more »
