Damascus, SANA- Foreign and Expatriates Ministry called on the international humanitarian organizations to exert pressure on Israeli occupation authorities to stop violations of Syrian citizens’ rights in the occupied Syrian Golan and to immediately intervene to enable them return to their towns.
“The Syrian permanent mission, at the request of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, sent letters to the Office of the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights and to the International Committee of the Red Cross in Geneva, demanding to exert pressure on the Israeli occupation authorities to stop their illegitimate practices against the Syrian citizens in Golan and to guarantee its compliance with its international legal obligations under the Geneva Conventions.” Foreign and Expatiates Ministry said in statement on Thursday.
The Ministry instructed the permanent mission to raise the issue of the violations of the Israeli occupation authorities against the occupied Syrian Golan citizens, particularly preventing travelers outside occupied Palestine who left for the purpose of study, work or any other circumstance from returning to their cities and towns in the occupied Syrian Golan and to address the authorities concerned at UN Organization and other international organizations in Geneva regarding this humanitarian issue in order to protect the occupied Syrian Golan citizens from the occupation practices.
The letters called on those sides to immediately intervene and enable those Syrians to return to their towns in the occupied Syrian Golan as soon as possible and without imposing any preconditions.
