Syria in Last 24 Hours: Envoy Slams Western Silence on Fatal Terrorist Attacks against Damascus Civilians

 

Syria’s Ambassador to the United Nations Bashar al-Ja’afari blasted the US and its western allies for their silence on the killing of civilians by the terrorist groups in Eastern Damascus.

Al-Ja’afari’s remarks came after the Syrian government forces have been pounding terrorist positions in the area to liberate it and free a large number of civilians struggling there with malnutrition and lack of basic medical supplies.

The Syrian army also continued its advances in other key provinces across Syria.

Damascus

Syria’s UN envoy denounced the US and Europe for their silence on the carnage of civilians in Damascus by the terror groups operating in Eastern Ghouta, saying it is “unacceptable” to endanger the lives of eight million in the capital in order to protect a few thousand terrorists in its suburbs.

Bashar al-Ja’afari was speaking at a United Nations Security Council meeting on the situation in Syria.

After losing most of the Syrian territories under their control, foreign-backed militant groups, including the notorious Al-Nusra Front, are now largely concentrated in the Damascus suburb of Eastern Ghouta, an area they have been using to launch deadly mortar attacks on the capital.

Syrian government forces have been pounding terrorist positions in the area to liberate it and free a large number of civilians struggling there with malnutrition and lack of basic medical supplies.

The US and its allies accuse Syrian forces of killing civilians in its aerial campaign against militant positions in Eastern Ghouta, a claim sharply rejected by Damascus and Moscow, which backs the anti-terror operation with its air force.

Aleppo

Syria’s Tahrir Front, formed after the merger of Ahrar al-Sham and Nouralddeen al-Zinki terrorist groups, and Tahrir al-Sham Hay’at (the Levant Liberation Board or the Al-Nusra Front) continued to exchange heavy fire in Western Aleppo for the second day in a row on Friday.

According to pro-opposition activists, the Syrian Tahrir Front launched an attack on Tahrir Al-Sham Hay’at’s positions in Kafr Naha in Western Aleppo.

The attack resulted in a series of fierce clashes between the terrorist groups, but with no change in the ground situation.

The two terrorist groups also clashed near the town of Dar al-Izzah, with Syria’s Tahrir Front also leading the attack against Tahrir Al-Sham Hay’at.

Earlier reports said that at least 40 terrorists were killed and several more were wounded in fierce cashes between two main groups in the provinces of Aleppo and Idlib.

Syria’s Tahrir Front stormed the positions of Tahrir al-Sham Hay’at and captured the towns of al-Naqir, Abedin, Harash al-Habit and al-Qasabiyah and several villages in Jabal al-Zaviyeh and Jabal Shahshahbo regions.

In the meantime, Tahrir al-Sham drove the rival terrorist group out of the towns of Batbo and Kafr Naseh in Western Aleppo and kept its gunmen on alert near the towns of Dar al-Izzah, Khan al-Asal and Tadil to launch attack on the positions of Syria’s Tahrir Front.

Field sources said that at least 40 militants from both warring sides, including Commander of Tahrir al-Sham Hay’at Abu Moslem Souran, were killed and several more were wounded in the infighting.
