Foreign Ministry: Syria Reiterates its Right to Respond  to any Breach of Sovereignty

May 21, 2013

Foreign and Expatriates Ministry on Tuesday reiterated Syria’s right to respond immediately to any breach of its sovereignty and the sanctity of its land, calling upon the UN Security Council to put an end to the Israeli violations.

The Ministry addressed two identical letters to the President of the Security Council and the UN Secretary General on the Syrian armed forces’ destroying of an Israeli vehicle which entered from the occupied territories and crossed the cease-fire line.

The letters also referred to the incident of firing two rockets by the Israeli enemy from the occupied site of Tal al-Faras toward one of the Syrian sites in al-Zubaydiah village without causing casualties.

“Subsequent to our previous letters addressed to you on the Israeli violations against the Syrian sovereignty and its breach of the Disengagement Agreement, the latest of which was our letter on May 8, 2013, an Israeli vehicle breached the cease-fire line at 1:10 am on May 21, 2013 and headed toward Bir Ajam village that is located in the liberated area of the Golan,” the letters read.

They added that the Syrian armed forces targeted the Israeli vehicle, noting that armed terrorist groups are present in Bir Ajam village, toward which the vehicle was heading.

The letters also mentioned that Israel fired two rockets from Tal al-Faras site in the occupied Syrian Golan toward Syria’s territories.

“Those two incidents constitute a new violation of the UN Charter and the Disengagement Agreement and an aggression against the Syrian sovereignty,” said the Foreign and Expatriates Ministry.

“The Syrian Arab Republic dealt with this violation in the framework of practicing the right to self-defense that is secured by the UN Charter,” the Ministry added, noting that the Syrian government has already drawn the attention of the Security Council’s President and the UN Secretary General to these Israeli violations and Israel’s intervention in the Syrian internal affairs.

The Ministry went on saying that Israel’s intervention has been evident through providing logistic support to the armed terrorist groups, including those operating in the Disengagement zone, and launching attacks on the Syrian territories, stressing that these Israeli practices constitute a violation of the UN Charter.

“While Syria places these facts before the Security Council, it once again reaffirms its right to immediately respond to any violation of its sovereignty and the sanctity of its land, and that lies within the framework of practicing its right to self-defense,” the Ministry said.

It added that Syria “expects the Security Council to put an end to the Israeli violations that breach the UN Charter and the Disengagement Agreement.”

    Syria stresses right to respond to Israeli violations

    DAMASCUS, May 21, 2013 (Xinhua) — The Syrian Foreign Ministry stressed Tuesday the country’s right to immediately respond to any Israeli violation against its sovereignty.

    The remarks were made in a letter addressing the United Nations, in which the ministry complained against the latest Israeli violation that took place earlier on Tuesday when an Israeli military vehicle crossed the cease-fire between Israel and Syria on the Golan Heights.

    The Syrian army destroyed the vehicle and its occupants after crossing the cease-fire line, the ministry said, adding that the measure was part of Syria’s right of self-defense.

    The ministry also urged the UN to put an end to Israel’s repetitive violations.

    In another statement, the Syrian army confirmed the incident and said that after the Syrian troops destroyed the vehicle, Israel responded by firing two rockets at a military site in Syria but caused no casualties.

    Slamming what it called the aggression, the statement said the recent move further proves the Zionist entity’s involvement in the course of events in Syria through its direct coordination with the armed ‘rebels’.

    Syria has recently accused Israel of helping the ‘rebels’ on ground especially after Israel carried out two airstrikes against Syrian military positions over the past month.

    On Monday, the Syrian army said it had found an Israeli vehicle in the central city of al-Qussair where the troops are fighting pitch battles to recapture the city from the Western-backed ‘rebels’.

    Israel and Turkey co-production In May 1997, Israel and Turkey signed an agreement valued in excess of US$500 million for the establishment of a joint-venture between Israel’s Rafael and Turkey’s Turkish Aerospace Industries for the co-production of Popeye I and Popeye II missiles in Turkey. Popeye is the name of a family of air-to-surface missiles developed and in use by Israel, of which several types have been developed for Israeli and export users.
