Syria demands int’l action to curb Israel over killing of Palestinian minister

Thursday, 11 December 2014

Damascus, SANA – Syria demanded on Thursday that the international community take serious action to curb the terrorist practices of the Israeli government.

An official source at the Foreign and Expatriates Ministry called in a statement to SANA on the international community to take a “serious” stand to terminate the Israeli “orgy” of terrorist acts which menace the security and stability of the region.

The source expressed Syria’s vehement condemnation of the Israeli occupation forces’ assassination of Palestinian Minister Ziad Abu Ain, who was head of the Anti-Wall and Settlement Commission in the Palestinian Authority.

The Palestinian official died after being hit by Israeli troops and inhaling tear gas during a protest in the occupied West Bank on Wednesday.

While decrying the Israeli crime as “brutal”, the source said it once again attests to the aggressive nature and the organized state terrorism governing the manner of the Israeli government.

A manner that, the statement added, has been quite evident whether in Israel’s continuous suppression of the Palestinian people or its close cooperation with the armed terrorist organizations in Syria.

The Foreign Ministry source voiced Syria’s condolences to the family of the “martyr” as well as its support and solidarity with the Palestinian people in their struggle to regain their legitimate rights and having the international resolutions on the right to establishing an independent Palestinian state with its Jerusalem as it capital be enforced.
