Syrian govt slams Turkish offensive/invasion in Afrin as 'occupation'
The Syrian government described Thursday a Turkish offensive in Syria's Afrin region as an illegal "aggression" and said it would deal with it accordingly.


"The Turkish military operation in northern Syria is a blatant aggression," said a foreign ministry statement circulated on state media. The unauthorized presence of foreign forces represents "occupation and will be dealt with on this basis," it said.

  1. Syrian Foreign and Expatriates Ministry on Thursday sent two identical letters to the UN Secretary General and UNSC President saying that the Turkish regime continues to spread lies that are not convincing to anyone anymore and attempts to justify its military aggressions on the Syrian Arab Republic depending on the self-defense concept mentioned in Article No. 51 of UN Charter similar to what the so-called US-led international coalition has done to justify its horrific crimes perpetrated in Syria against innocent civilians.


    The Ministry added that Syria rejects all attempts of the Turkish regime of relying on UNSC resolutions no. 1373, 1624, 1170 and 1178 as no resolutions of these give the member states the right to harm the sovereignty of other states and launch military operations on their territories under the pretext of counterterrorism.

    “The Syrian Arab Republic stresses that the presence of any foreign military operations on its territories without its overt approval is an assault and occupation, which will be dealt with on that basis,” it continued to say, adding that the Turkish military operation on Syria constitutes a violation of the UN Charter.

    “Syria urges the UNSC not to allow to any state to use force in a way that contradicts with the international law or to depend on the charter to justify its aggressive atrocities as it also urges the Council not to make the Charter a method by the hands of such states to explain it in accordance to their narrow interests that contradict with the context and core of the Charter.
