DAMASCUS, (SANA)_The People’s Assembly condemned the endeavors of the British and French governments to authorize arming the terrorist groups and takfiri Jihadists in Syria through lifting the ban on sending European weapons to them.
In three identical letters addressed to President of the European Parliament, Chairman of the French National Assembly and President of the British House of Commons, the People’s Assembly said that these attempts are “a flagrant violation of the UN Charter, the EU law, the international law and the UN Security Council resolutions which all ban backing terrorism and urge all countries to unite in combating it.”
The letters called on the addressees to visit Syria for a closer look at the events there and to ”meet l non-Syria takfiri Jihadists under arrest, who were trained in neighboring countries, armed and smuggled to Syria under the protection and sponsorship of the Turkish government to establish an Islamic Caliphate in keeping with their takfiri ideologies .”
The letters showed that some of these mercenaries ”are directly linked to the societal fabric in Europe and some sleeper cells there,” as evidenced by statements of European officials, namely the statement of the French Foreign Minister, Laurent Fabius, in which he said that up to 100 French nationals are fighting in Syria, echoing similar statements by the British Finance Minister that around 80 British nationals are fighting there, in addition to the German interior minister’s announcement that 3 jihadist cells linked to terrorists in Syria were discovered.
The People’s Assembly said that what Syria is experiencing currently is part of the international terrorism that Europe and the US witnessed over three years in the aftermath of September 11th events.
The letters added that the French and British attempts are dangerous in terms of backing takfiri Jihadist groups ideologically linked to al-Qaeda terrorist organization in pursuit of the Qatari and Saudi money, and the Turkish government’s willingness to set up an Islamic Caliphate on Europe’ borders.
The letters noted that the Turkish government has been working in coordination with Qatar and Saudi Arabia to facilitate the infiltration of these Jihadists since the crisis in Syria started in 2011, who were originally banned from entering the Turkish territories, and helps them to infiltrate to Syria under the pretext of Jihad against the Syrian state and people across the political, religious and ethnical strata.
The People’s Assembly made “a special plea to our brothers in humanity to not allow some European governments to adopt a decision that will stoke the crisis, wreak even more damage and harm humanity and the last secular country in the region, Syria, whose consequences will eventually reach the European citizens, sooner or later.”
The Assembly called for forming a European parliamentary delegation to visit Syria to get a close look at the situation there and meet a number of takfiri Jihadists under arrest who were sent from neighboring countries for Jihad in Syria.
”We are looking forward to you to take this issue into consideration and subject such kinds of decisions to elaborate discussion in the common interest of humanity and the peoples of the region and the world,” the letters said, ” and out of respect to the international law and the UNSC resolution No. 1373 for the year 2001 issued under the 7th Chapter of the UN charter.”
