BEIRUT, LEBANON (9:50 A.M.) – The permanent representative of Syria to the United Nations and other international organizations in Geneva, Ambassador Hussameddine Aalla, renewed Damascus’s demand to end the Israeli occupation of the Syrian Golan.

The ambassador said during the 45th session of the Human Rights Council:

“Despite repeated calls by the Human Rights Council and by the main organs of the United Nations calling for an end to the Israeli occupation of the Syrian Golan, the occupation entity continues its illegal practices and measures to impose its laws and administration on the occupied Golan in violation.”

He said, “The occupation authorities continue their repressive practices against the Syrian citizens of the occupied Golan and impose restrictions and arbitrary measures that violate their basic rights, including their right to work, health, education, property and freedom of movement, while continuing to steal the natural resources of the Golan.”

He continued: “The occupying power continues to harass the citizens of the Golan through attempts to confiscate agricultural lands owned by them and threaten them to expropriate them to force them to accept property titles issued by the occupation authorities and establish an agricultural reality that supports Israeli settlers in addition to restricting the movement of the Syrian population and preventing them from building on their land, and preventing them from visiting their relatives in the motherland.”

The Syrian official stressed “the importance of Article Seven in monitoring the Israeli violations of human rights in the Occupied Palestinian Territory, including East Jerusalem and the occupied Syrian Golan, and its role in pressuring to compel Israel to stop committing illegal violations and practices and end its occupation, pointing to the responsibility of the states that support Israel, to continue these crimes.”

“Syria renews its support for the right of the Palestinian people to establish their independent state, with Jerusalem as its capital, on the borders of June 4, 1967, and to ensure the return of refugees, in accordance with the relevant United Nations resolutions,” he added.

Syria is not capable to recover Idlib area, much less it will be able to recover the Golan Hights.

You do understand that the fascist government in Turkey is the only thing stopping the complete liberation of Idlib, right? Syria has the manpower, logistics and manpower to overrun Idlib in a matter of weeks as we have seen in previous offensives. Please educate yourselves regarding the matter and abstain from posting imaginative fallacies. Just remember that it was Turkey actively supporting ISIS and buying in stolen Syrian oil from ISIS (just go to YouTube and see it for yourself) 😉

It seems like each month Syria demands that Israel withdraw from the Golan Heights, but they won’t go and fight for it with their Iranian friends. It’s like they’re hesitant about possibly having to fight the IDF and getting pushed back and humiliated.
What a pathetic country… issuing demands but scaried to fight.

Ah, maybe Hussameddine Aalla forgets international law: it’s only feasible by implying in a genuine peace treaty. Occupation is 100% legal as long it’s not the case. I’m not sure locals would agree BTW : Druzes have no envy to become Syrian again!

85% of young Druzes do military service in IDF while it’s mandatory only for Jews, and 26% of Jews dodge the draft. Golan Druzes are more Zionist than Israeli Jews! Israel will simply push a referendum and guess what the result will be?

Moreover, Israel’s GDP/capita is now better than Japan, they earn more in a month than Syrian Druzes in a year and IDF protected Syrian Druzes from AQ+ISIS when SAA withdrew. Druzes are no fools, they see their interest!

Iran & Criminal Dictator Assad are Israeli puppet.
They will issue only mouth statements against Israel then kill Syrians with chemical barrel and phosphorus bombs.

Where is your proof and compelling evidence? The fact that you have not even bothered to cite any credible evidence demonstrates you severe lack of intellect 😉

It is so laughable, but so worrying that oafish buffoons like you exist. What a shame…
