Syria on Tuesday condemned the so-called bill “legalizing settler homes in the West Bank,” endorsed by the Israeli Knesset which legalizes the looting of vast Palestinian territories in the West Bank.
An official source at the Foreign and Expatriates Ministry said that passing the bill by the Knesset indicates once again to the real intentions of the Israeli successive governments and their disregard of the international law and UN resolutions that condemn settlement policy in the occupied Arab lands.
“The government of Syrian Arab Republic condemns, in the strongest terms, this Zionist, illegal measure that comes as a continuation of the violations committed by Israel against the Palestinian people,” Foreign Ministry said in a statement.
It affirmed Syria’s firm, principled stance which supports the Palestinian people’s right of self-determination to establish their independent state with Jerusalem as its capital.
“Syria calls on the UN and security Council to take deterrent procedures against Israel and force it to stop its hostile measures in the occupied Arab lands, including the occupied Syrian Golan,” the Foreign Ministry said.
It concluded by saying that Syria calls on the international community to guarantee the legitimate rights of the Palestinian people and achieve the just and comprehensive peace in the region.
