Damascus, SANA – Syria held the Turkish leadership fully responsible for any crime committed by armed terrorist organizations in the towns of al-Fou’a and Kefraya.

In two letters addressed to the UN Secretary-General and the head of the Security Council on Tuesday, the Syrian Foreign and Expatriates Ministry condemned the silence of the Security Council over the crimes committed against civilians in al-Fou’a and Kefraya by the terrorists besieging the town, particularly the silence of certain states that boast of fighting terrorism.

The Ministry said that the terrorist organizations, which are backed by the Saudi, Qatari, and Turkish governments, didn’t stop at besieging the towns and preventing food, drink, medicine, and fuel from entering them in a bid to starve their locals; rather the terrorist organizations have also been targeting the towns on daily basis with explosive shells, killing and injuring civilians, most of them women, children, and elderly people.

The letters said that these crimes committed by terrorist organizations including Jabhat al-Nusra and Ahrar al-Cham that murder anyone who disagree with them, crimes which are carried out under logistic support and direct instructions from the Turkish leadership, constitute a continuation of a series of methodical terrorism targeting the Syrian people.

Syria called on the Security Council to implement its counterterrorism resolutions immediately in cooperation with the Syrian government which is bearing the brunt of combating terrorism in Syria, and also demanded that the practices of the states that support and fund terrorists – particularly Saudi Arabia, Qatar, and Turkey – be exposed and stopped.

The letters concluded by saying that the time has come to act instead of remaining silent over the crimes of terrorists and their supporters, and that the international community must hold the sides that prevent the Security Council from fulfilling its duties responsible for failing to combat terrorism.
