BEIRUT, LEBANON (11:20 P.M.) – Syria’s permanent representative to the United Nations, Dr. Bashar Al-Jaafari, stated at a U.N. session on Tuesday that the occupied Golan Heights is an integral part of Syria and its liberation is a high priority.

“Israel’s continued occupation of Arab lands represents the most dangerous challenge to the credibility and prestige of the international law’s rules and conventions,” Dr. Jaafari said at a session for UN Security Council.

The Syrian diplomat highlighted U.N. Resolution 497, which reaffirmed the Golan Heights as Syrian territory.

“The Israeli occupation entity still launches attacks on Syria to offer support to the terrorist organizations, the latest of which caused the martyrdom of 4 civilians, among them a baby, and injured 21 others, the majority of them were women and children… in addition to the Israeli measures to loot the properties of the citizens in Golan to expand settlements, all are very dangerous acts,” Dr. Jaafari continued.

He reiterated that Syria calls on the U.N. and Security Council to immediately act and force the Israeli forces to set free Syrian captive Sidqi al-Maqt and all Syrian captives in Israeli prisons.

“Syria’s stance is firm and principled in support of the Palestinian people’s right of self-determination and the establishment of their independent state with Jerusalem as its capital and the Palestinian refugees’ right to return home according to resolution No.194 for 1948,” he added.

The Golan Heights was captured by the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) during the Six-Day War of 1967. Syria attempted to recapture the region during the 1973 October War; however, they were ultimately repulsed after several days of battle.

You missed your history lessons at school. Arab-Islamist land thieves snatched 40 countries from Christians alone, not even speaking about Zoroastrians, Buddhists, Hindus, Tengris, Confucianists while mass murdering several hundreds of millions of them… They’ve only been kicked out from the Arab-League who took profit from the 1948 war to oppress non-Israeli Jews and steal 200,000km² in real estate from them. As a compensation with interests, Israel should reclaim full Syria, Lebanon and Jordan, and emptied from Arabs. Note that the 130,000 Jews in Iraq settled there during the Nebuchadnezzar era… There still were no Arabs in Mesopotamia… There is… Read more »

Palestine has been liberated in 1948! Arab Palestine has became Jordan, Jewish Palestine re-took its real name : Israel. Moreover, Golan and Sheeba Farms can’t be returned without a peace treaty which both Syria and Lebanon refuse since 1949… Mark my words : won’t happen for GH : Golanis Druzes don’t want to be returned to Syria!

Hace mucho tiempo se viene diciendo, pero la ONU como siempre guarda silencio cómplice, las Resoluciones nunca fueron acatados por Israel por tanto las sanciones se deben imponer a esa nación pero ocurre lo contrario, entonces pregunto, ¿Para qué sirve la ONU?. no tiene razón de su existencia.

UNGA resolutions are non binding. Only UNSC ones are if they intimate an order. Now, when it comes to UNSC resolutions, Jafaari is telling LIES : occupation of GH is legal, UNSC Res.242 (1967) says that Israel SHOULD give GH back, and that Syria SHOULD stop attacking Israel. UNSC simply can’t order to give GH back since Syria refuses a peace treaty and reclaims the restitution of GH as a pre-condition for peace talks, which Syria is not entitled to ask, being the aggressor! What was declared illegal through UNSC Res.481 in 1981, was when Begin annexed GH… +++”las Resoluciones… Read more »

Well, Syria is not even able to recover Idlib, AL-Tanf, Afrin, and east Euphrates. So, Goldan Heights are lost forever.

+++ “Well, Syria is not even able to recover Idlib, AL-Tanf, Afrin, and east Euphrates.” >>> SDF/YPG aren’t into separatism! It’s up to Assad to show a little respect for the Kurds and east Euphrates will be back. He can have AL-Tanf ANY DAY too. Pompeo HIMSELF said USA was ready to back Assad presidency. All that Assad is asked as a bargain chip is Syria’s neutrality in the Mid-East cold war. Assad should really consider the interest of Syria : – No more sanctions – No more blocking of IMF – Marshal plan to rebuild – A-10 and AC-130… Read more »

According to these testimonies, Hariri reminded Assad of his pledge not to seek an extension for Lahoud’s term, and Assad replied that there was a policy shift and that the decision was already taken. He added that Lahoud should be viewed as his personal representative in Lebanon and that “opposing him is tantamount to opposing Assad himself”. He then added that he (Assad) “would rather break Lebanon over the heads of Hariri and [Druze leader] Walid Jumblatt than see his word in Lebanon broken”.[7] According to the testimonies, Assad then threatened both longtime allies Hariri and Jumblatt with physical harm… Read more »

While GH are only 1,200km² = the size of Nashville, TN! Moreover, Syria could recover territories lost (maybe even the Antioch/Hatay province seized by Turkey in 1939 = 5,600km², if Erdogan goes on at being a shïthead), have the roaches expelled, become VERY prosperous, live in peace and cut the Palestinian Gordian knot at once!

Rhodium 10 : IDF is not shooting at SAA until SAA shoots at them first, it’s their ROE (rule of engagement). They only go after Hezbollah or IRGC.
And they use too much restraint : with the gear and the intelligence they have, these should near all be returned home in body bags.

Total bullocks as usual, jewish frenchie, and you know it first hand. They do not even hide their wish to constantly maintain Syrian armed forces in a state of strategic dusarray with low morale. IDF officials have stopped making comments again after every strike and stepped back from their “IRGC-only” narrative, since it never stood the test of facts. You are a funny AND a phony person to claim Bashar needs to stop interfering outside. 35% of his country has been occupied to this day by Western militaries that necer came invited in the first place, and foreign intelligence agencies… Read more »
