UNSC urged to investigate int’l coalition’s crimes in Syria
Tehran, Syria's Permanent Representative to the UN said the illegal Int'l Coalition committed a new crime against the Syrians by bombing Hajin city in Deir Ezzor province with internationally-banned white phosphorous, causing the martyrdom and injury of scores.
Dr. Bashar Al-Jaafari's remarks came during a United Nations Security Council session dedicated to discuss the situation in the Middle East, SANA reported.
The International Coalition is fighting everything in Syria except for terrorism. Its practices prove that its goals and those of terrorist organizations are one and the same: spreading chaos, death and destruction, not to mention its continued support for ISIS terrorist organization, he said.
The UN Security Council, he added, is called on to conduct a prompt investigation into the Coalition's crimes, to act to prevent their recurrence and to end the hostile illegal presence of the US and other foreign troops on the Syrian territory, indicating that the countries backing terrorism are used to taking advantage of UN platforms every time the Syrian army makes an advance against terrorist organizations in an attempt to exercise political pressure and blackmail against Syria to hinder it.
The countries backing terrorism in Syria have created an illegitimate grouping called 'The Mini-Group on Syria' to impede the outcomes of Astana and Sochi and obstruct the political process, al-Jaafari added.
Al-Jaafari said Syria does not acknowledge any roadmap in which it is not involved, adding that the UN should not be part of any hostile political groupings.
How can the 'Mini Group' entity-which have onboard member countries that financed, trained and sponsored terrorism in Syria and others which engaged in a direct aggression against it-be feigning care for the lives of the Syrian people?, al-Jaafari said.
