Damascus, Syria called on the Security Council to shoulder its responsibilities by working to stop the attacks and treasonous actions of the SDF militias, which are backed by the US and some Western states.
In letters addressed to the UN Secretary-General and the head of the Security Council on Monday, the Foreign and Expatriates Ministry said that the recent massacres committed in the countryside of Deir Ezzor by the militias which label themselves as the Syrian Democratic Forces or SDF in collusion with the US-led coalition, seek to subjugate Syrian citizens who are demanding their rights and demanding that the Syrian state resume carrying out its duties in that area.
The Ministry said that the SDF militias responded with violence to Syrian citizens' demands for improving the educational sister and providing food in water in that impoverished area, killing locals and destroying infrastructure.
The letters noted that protests by Syrian citizens against the SDF broke out in several areas in Deir Ezzor province as well as south of Hasaka city.
The Ministry said the actions of the SDF and their shameful alliance with Syria's enemies prove without a doubt their criminal and terrorism nature, and that they do not express the Syrian people, stressing that the massacred committed by the SDF will only bring them disgrace and the contempt of the Syrian people.
The letters said Syria calls on the Security Council to shoulder its responsibilities by working to stop the attacks and treasonous actions of the SDF militias which are backed by the US and some Western states, who should be compelled to respect Security Council resolutions that assert Syria's sovereignty, independence, and territorial integrity.
The Ministry concluded the letters by saying that Syria reasserts its legal right to defend its citizens across the country, citing paragraph 8 of Security Council resolution no. 2254 which gives Syria the right to confront actions carried out by terrorist groups and establishments and entities that seek to undermine Syria's unity.
