Syria demands severe & urgent condemnation of massacre committed by foreign backed terrorist gangs in Ma’an


The Foreign and Expatriates Ministry issued two identical letters to the UN Secretary-General and the chairman of the Security Council, in which it said that armed terrorist groups committed a new massacre in the village of Maan in Hama province.

The letters said that the massacre claimed the lives of entire families, including dozens of women, children, elderly and disabled people, and resulted in destroying a number of houses in the villages.

The Foreign Ministry noted that terrorist groups had attacked this village repeatedly in recent times and displaced its people, and that this was done according to regional and foreign agendas targeting the unity of Syria’s people and its social fabric.

The Ministry said that this new massacre is further proof that these terrorists and those who support them insist on shedding Syrian blood and that they totally disregard all efforts to achieve a credible political process capable of ending the methodical destruction carried out at the hands of terrorist groups against Syria’s people, infrastructure and achievements.

The letters said that the supporters of counterterrorism have went too far in ignoring this impending danger to Syria, neighboring countries and the world, preferring to use the situation in Syria to achieve cheap political gains that serve their regional plans of controlling the area and its people and resources.

The Ministry affirmed that the countries which train, arm, fund, harbor and smuggle terrorists into Syria and utilize their media outlets to promote what they call “jihad” are fully responsible for the spread of terrorism and it becoming a direct threat to peace and security in the region and the world.

The letters addressed the UN Secretary-General and the Security Council, demanding a stern and urgent condemnation of the massacre committed in Maan, of the terrorists who committed them, and of the sides supporting them, stressing that the time has come for implementing Security Council resolutions on counterterrorism.

The letters concluded by saying that the murders which armed terrorist groups keep committing in Syria prove once again that the main task of the UN and specifically the Security Council must be halting violence and combating terrorism wherever it is.
