TEHRAN (Press Shia Agency) – Syria strongly condemned Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s plan to annex large swathes of the Palestinian territories to “the Zionist entity” if he is re-elected next week.
Syria affirmed that this comes in the context of the expansionist nature of the Zionist entity and in a new step in the aggression against the rights of the Palestinian people and is an attempt to liquidate the Palestinian cause, SANA reported.
A source at the Syrian Foreign and Expatriates Ministry said in a statement to SANA on Wednesday “The Syrian Arab Republic strongly condemns the declaration of the occupation entity’s prime minister on his intention to annex Palestinian territories in the occupied West Bank to the Zionist entity in a flagrant violation of the international legitimacy and its resolutions with regard to the legal status of the occupied Palestinian territories.”
The source added that Netanyahu’s declaration comes in the context of the expansionist nature of the occupation and is against the rights of the Palestinian people and it is an attempt to liquidate the Palestinian cause with the participation of the US administration whose hostility towards the Arab nation, interests and future have become very clear.
The source went on saying that Syria renews its full support for the Palestinian people in their struggle to restore their legitimate rights and to liberate their territories from the clutches of the occupation and establish their independent state with Al-Quds (Jerusalem) as its capital, and it asserts that the current Arab status quo has enabled the occupation entity to go forwards in its continued aggression against the Arab nation, and that some Arabs who rush and promote for free normalization with this entity bear the historical responsibility for its rogue behavior, affirming that the choice of resistance and steadfastness only will preserve the Arab rights and will defend the present of the nation and guarantee its future.
