Syria Files UN Complaint against Jordan: Amman Training Terrorists
Syria accused Jordan of training terrorist militants on its soil, as it urged the United Nations to take a firm line against Amman over the issue.
In a letter sent to the UN Secretary General and Head of the UN Security Council, Syrian foreign ministry said that Jordan had allowed terror organizations to take over border crossings, official news agency reported.
The letter added that Jordan had established training camps for terrorists on its land, adding that it had recently facilitated the entry of thousands of Nusra Front terrorists to Busra al-Sham city in Daraa province.
The ministry described the Jordanian conduct as a “grave violation” of the UN Charter, international law and the UN counter-terrorism resolutions.
Meanwhile, Damascus warned Amman that the scourge of terrorism won’t stop at Syria’s borders but will affect all the countries backing terrorists.
The ministry concluded by calling on the UN Security Council to take a firm line against the Jordanian regime and enforce its counter-terrorism resolutions.
Last month, terrorist groups seized the key Nassib border crossing between Syria and Jordan, the last post between the countries that remained under government control.
