Iraq, Syria Pledge Support for Palestinians to Confront Israel

Middle East: Syrian Minister of Foreign Affairs and Expatriates Faisal al-Miqdad has criticized the UN Security Council over its inaction to maintain international peace and security, saying its failure is encouraging the Israeli regime to continue its aggression and crimes against the Palestinians.

Miqdad, in a message addressed to the UN General Assembly read out by Syria’s Permanent Representative to the United Nations Bassam Sabbagh, said the new Israeli war on the besieged Gaza Strip and its repeated assaults across the occupied West Bank, including Jerusalem al-Quds, are in line with the regime’s continuous acts of aggression in the region, including against Syria and Lebanon, and its support for terrorist groups.
