Syria denounced on Monday the evacuation of hundreds of members of a Western-backed “aid group” and their relatives from Syria’s south through the Israeli occupied territories.
“The criminal operation that Israel and its tools conducted in the area reveals the true nature of the so-called White Helmets,” said a source at the Syrian foreign ministry, cited by state news agency SANA.
The source repeated the Syrian government’s accusation that the rescue force is a front group for terrorists and said Damascus had warned the world of its dangers.
“Words of condemnation are not enough to express the indignation that every Syrian feels towards these despicable conspiracies and the limitless aid from Western countries, Israel, and Jordan to the White Helmets,” the source said.
The “White Helmets” is a Western-backed “aid group” accused of working with Takfiri militants and staging false flag gas attacks in Syria.
More than 400 “White Helmets” members and family members from Syria’s southern provinces of Daraa and Quneitra were ferried into the occupied territories on Sunday, then reportedly taken into Jordan for resettlement into Western countries.
