Foreign Ministry condemns U.S.-led coalition’s airstrike against Syrian army post in Deir Ezzor

(Deir Ezzor province is on what I consider to be the demarcation line between Syria and what the coalition forces want to break off of the country in the north east in order to create the Syrian part of Greater Kurdistan. It is about 80 miles south of the location where reports are that Obama is setting up an illegal military base in the north of the country.)

Foreign and Expatriates Ministry said that four U.S.- led coalition warplanes targeted with 9 rockets one of the Syrian army’s posts in Deir Ezzor province, claiming the lives of 3 soldiers and injuring 13 others in addition to destroying three armored vehicles, four military vehicles, 23 mm machinegun, 14.5 machinegun and a depot of arms and ammunition.

In two identical letters addressed to the UN Secretary General and Chairman of the UN Security Council on Monday, the Foreign and Expatriates Ministry stressed that the Syrian Arab Republic strongly condemns this heinous aggression by the coalition and affirms that it contradicts with the goals and wills of the UN Charter.

Syria called on the Security Council to immediately take the urgent measures to prevent such aggression from occurring again, adding that the aggression on the military post hinders the efforts aiming to fight terrorism and reiterates that the U.S.- led coalition lacks seriousness and credibility in the fight against terrorism.
