Speaking at a UN Security Council session on the situation in Syria, Ja’afari stated that the al-Nusra Front terrorist group, which occupies most of Idlib, continues its acts of aggression against the region’s adjacent areas and the Syrian army positions.
He also emphasized that Syria reserves the right to safeguard its citizens from terror.
“Syria will liberate all its territory from terrorism and from any illegitimate foreign presence in the country,” Ja’afari noted, adding, “Syria will spare no effort to rescue its citizens from the dominance of terrorist organizations in Idlib, which take people as human shields and to put an end to the attacks of those terrorists on civilians in the neighboring towns and cities.”
Ja’afari also complained that some Security Council member states have, since the beginning of the Syria crisis, been trying to exploit the humanitarian issue in order to defame the Syrian government and tarnish its image.
