The recent developments unveil Israeli practices based on aggression, displacement, dispossession and demolition of homes, in addition to plans for Zionism and demographic change of Arab holy sites, the Foreign Minister denounced in a speech delivered via videoconference during the 30th special session of the Human Rights Council.
He indicated Tel Aviv benefits from the US and Western support for those practices, which constitute described violations of international law.
Syria condemns these crimes and considers them war crimes and crimes against humanity, and demands that Israel be held accountable for them, the Syrian diplomacy chief said.
He denounced unethical attempts to justify them under the pretext of the right to defend oneself.
The diplomat questioned the credibility of those who claim responsibility for human rights violations, and reaffirmed Syria’s support for the right of the Palestinian people to establish their independent State with Jerusalem as its capital and guarantee the right of return for Palestinian refugees.
