Syria Calls on UN to End Israeli Occupation of Golan

TEHRAN ( Iran News ) – Syria’s Permanent Representative to the UN and other international organizations in Geneva reiterated Syria’s demand for ending the Israeli occupation of the Syrian Arab Golan. “In spite of the repeated resolutions issued by the Human Rights’ Council and UN bodies which call for ending the Israeli occupation of the Syrian Golan, the Israeli entity continues its illegitimate procedures to impose its laws and administration on the occupied Syrian Golan in a flagrant violation of the UN Security Council resolutions, including resolution no.497 for 1981,” Ambassador Hussam Eddin Ala said in a statement to the 45th session of the Human Rights Council “ Item 7 on the state of the human rights in Palestine and other occupied Arab lands.” The occupation authorities continue their suppressive practices against the Syrian citizens in the occupied Golan and impose restrictions and arbitrary measures which violate their basic rights, including their right to work, health, education, possession and freedom of movement, as well as they continue to loot the natural resources of the occupied Syrian Golan, the ambassador said, SANA reported. “The occupying forces continue to tighten noose against the Golanese people in an attempt to seize their agriculture lands and to confiscate them and establish an agricultural situation to serve the Israeli settlers, in addition to restricting the Syrian citizens’ movement and preventing them from building on their lands in the framework of the Israeli schemes to establish a demographic change in the occupied Syrian Golan” Ala added.
