Syria condemns Israel's decision to expel Palestinians as ethnic cleansing, flagrant breach of international law
Syria on Tuesday strongly condemned the Israeli decision which leads to the expulsion of tens of thousands of Palestinians from their homeland on the pretext of not holding labor permits from the occupation authority, SANA reported.
" This decision is the adoption of the ethnic cleansing policy and a step to the mass deportation aiming at emptying the land from its people. It also constitutes a flagrant violation of international law and human rights and disregard of the will and resolutions of the international community," a Foreign Ministry official source said.
The source added that Syria, while confirming the need for an urgent move at both Arab and international levels to condemn this decision and prevent its implementation, sees that it is extremely dangerous to continue providing immunity to Israel as this enables it to disdain international law and will of the whole international community.
