Syria urges UNSC to do its job

Syria has called on the UNSC to do its job and halt the US-led so-called anti-terror coalition’s crimes against the nation.

On Wednesday, the Syrian foreign ministry sent two letters to UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres and the chairman of the UN Security Council, criticizing the international community’s silence towards the US’ atrocities.

The letter goes on to slam the states and organizations “which bargain in the humanitarian issues, but they remain silent when it comes to the US-led coalition crimes against the Syrian people.”

“Syria strongly condemns crimes committed by the international coalition and the terrorist groups against Syrian civilians, infrastructure and services and economic facilities shedding the blood of hundreds and causing huge damage and destruction,” the letter added.

The letters also brought to attention the US’ latest airstrikes which have killed a large number of people and destroyed large amounts of civilian infrastructure.

On Sunday, at least 12 civilians were killed in the US’ latest airstrikes on Syria’s eastern province of Dayr al-Zawr.

According to Syria’s official news agency, SANA, five people were killed while US jets targeted civilian areas located in the al-Kitf Street, the surroundings of al-Shafiei Mosque and al-Massriyeh roundabout in al-Bukamal city.

At least seven more people were killed in strikes on the village of Buqrus Fouqani in the province’s eastern countryside.

On Monday, at least 45 people were killed in the US’ latest airstrike in Syria.

“Syria strongly condemns crimes committed by the international coalition and the terrorist groups against Syrian civilians, infrastructure and services and economic facilities shedding the blood of hundreds and causing huge damage and destruction,” the Ministry added.
