Certain UNSC members lying to create pretext for aggression on Syria: Damascus

New York, April 10, IRNA/SANA - Syria’s Permanent Representative to the United Nations, Bashar al-Jaafari, said that the Israeli aggression against Syria would not succeed in protecting Israel’s agents from terrorist organizations, pointing out that some of the United Nations Security Council’s permanent members are trying to lie to defame Syria and create pretexts for attacking it.

Al-Jaafari, during the UN Security Council session on the situation in Syria on Monday evening, condemned in the strongest terms the Israeli aggression on T-4 Airport in Homs Province as a flagrant violation of the UN Security Council Resolution No. 350 of 1974 and relevant UN Security Council resolutions on combating terrorism.

“It has been proven to be false the campaigns carried out by certain countries, some of which are UNSC member states, on the deteriorating humanitarian situation in the eastern Ghouta, ” he said.

He added, “We note in every chapter of the scenario of the alleged use of chemical materials that these materials do not target militants at all but only target children and women,”

He confirmed that Syria is ready to facilitate the entry of a fact-finding mission of the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) to Douma as soon as possible to verify the allegations of the attack.
