The Foreign and Expatriates Ministry sent a letter to the UN Secretary-General and the head of the Security Council on the bombing of civilian houses in Tal al-Shayer in Hasaka province by the warplanes of the US-led international coalition.
The letter said that this crime committed by the illegal coalition has claimed the lives of 12 civilians from one family, and that the coalition has also committed a similar crime against innocent civilians at one of the Iraqi refugee camps in Khuwaibra village southeast of al-Shadadi, claiming the lives of 18 civilians.
The Ministry stressed that the coalition’s persistence in committing massacres, war crimes, and crimes against humanity, along with its continuing support for terrorists and its exploitation of terrorists and separatist militias, all show that the Security Council is negligent in enforcing international law and in putting an end to the coalition’s hostile plots that target Syria’s sovereignty and territorial integrity and seek to prolong the crisis.
The letter stressed that Syria calls on the Security Council to shoulder its responsibilities by condemning such massacres and working to stop them from reoccurring, as well as working to end the hostile and illegal presence of US and other foreign forces in Syria.
