Syrian Humanitarian Crisis Requires Urgent Political Solution

Al-Jaafari : Syria Will Cooperate with UN, Excluding Foreign Intervention

27 August، 2015

New York, SANA

Syria’s permanent Envoy to the UN, Dr. Bashar al-Jaafari said on Thursday the Syrian government is ready to continue cooperation with the UN to deliver humanitarian aid to all citizens affected by the crisis in any region.

“The admission of aid should be done in accordance with the UN principles for the humanitarian aid in the states of emergency, on top, respecting Syrian sovereignty, territorial integrity and in light of commitments resulting from the response plans signed with the Syrian government,” al-Jaafari said in a speech at a UN Security Council session to discuss regular report of the UN Chief on implementing resolutions 2193, 2165 and 2191.

He added that it is impossible to deal with the painful humanitarian situation in Syria apart from “the backgrounds of foreign economic, military and political intervention in the Syrian scene” as this intervention was the reason behind the emergence, feeding and the spread of terrorism in Syria and the region.

Al-Jaafari warned against that intervention as it is the main reason of the emergence of the humanitarian crisis in some Syrian areas, yet, it is not possible to improve the humanitarian situation remarkably and truly without halting the foreign intervention.

“The national reconciliations in Syria have proven once again that the Syrians are capable of sitting along with each other and solve their problems if the foreign intervention in their own affairs stopped, and if governments of countries which sponsor terrorism were forced to stop their bloody polices,” al-Jaafari said.

He considered that it is not probable for some countries, including Security Council members, to hide behind the so-called “moderate armed opposition” to justify their use of terrorists and extremists as tools to carry out their political agendas in Syria.
Al-Jaafari wondered why some sides legitimize the existence of what they call “moderate armed opposition” in Syria only other than many countries, and why they dedicated the Syrians with this innovation while we witness a campaign in the western media to market for armed groups in Syria.

He affirmed that it is of the Syrian government’s national and constitutional duty to protect its citizens from the plague of terrorism and extremism, and it is impossible for the Syrian government or any government in the world to fail to take actions while terrorists target the safe civilians with random shells as in Damascus, Aleppo and other Syrian cities.

The Wise Guardians

 Thursday, 27 August 2015 20:03

The Syrian State has the right to invite those who defend the Syrian people, said H.E. President Bashar Al-Assad in his recent interview with the Lebanese al-Manar Satellite TV, describing His Eminence Hezbollah Secretary General, Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah as the genuine, sincere, principled honest and transparent resistant Leader. The Syrians are indeed indebted to their Hezbollah brothers in blood and destiny.
When the wahabi Al-Qaeda affiliates and cannibals invaded the sacred Syria of tolerance, amity, secularity, the Syrians have been left a prey along with their culture, heritage, mosques, churches, synagogues and other worship places. Had it not been for the brave President, Army, Defense and Resistance Forces, Syria, the cradle of civilization and of monotheist religions could have been by now filled but only with ignorance, slaughter, extremism and non-humans! Thus, Syrians bow in respect for those heroes who brave every danger to save a child, church, mosque or whatever living, civilized.
This is what H.E. President Al-Assad underlined of the popular support and backing of the Syrians and the friends who support Syrian in the Middle East as well as in the world as the source of steadfastness. “We rely firstly on people, of course after relying on God, but if you don’t have public support then you cannot withstand. If you don’t have public support then there is no value for any political or national direction you adopt as a president or official or state. First, you rely on the people, and second on friends who stand firm alongside Syria and support in the region and in the world,” His Excellency said.
President Assad's relation with His Eminence Hezbollah Secretary General, Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah is strong and dates back to more than 20 years ago, and is a relation characterized by honesty and transparency, as Nasrallah is absolutely honest, transparent, principled, and loyal to his principles and his associates and friends to the extreme. It is the relationship between a ''resistant state and a true resistant figure who gave his son in defense of Lebanon.”  Back in April 1996, as SANA journalist, I was an eye witness to the late President Hafez Al-Assad's masterminded international recognition of the Resistance, ''April Understanding''. Rest in Peace, father, your sons have indeed been honored to inherit all and every sacred of yours.
Hi Eminence Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah, Hezbollah Leader, on April 6, 2015 declared:  "One of God blessings bestowed on Syria is Presidency of Bashar Al-Assad when the ongoing conspiracy took place… the steadfast brave President Al-Assad has proved through his courage and for all those who are near and far that Syria is an independent State…I call on you to appreciate and esteem the value of having President Bashar Al-Assad, who has indeed a huge popular backing, as the head of the Syrian State."
Yes, this is the leadership deeds and words of the brave and wise. Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah's June 15th, 2000 pledge as to complete the honorable process of the late President Hafez Assad have come true. During his meeting with Lt. Gen. Bashar Assad on that day to extend comfort to the Assad’s family, Nasrallah stressed that the Lebanese Resistance would be ‘’permanent following the steadfastness and struggle inclination of the late President Hafez al-Assad and to back his process. I am here to support the process and inclination of Dr. Bashar al-Assad due to his being perpetuity to his father.’’ It is the blessings of God to have the wise guardians for all of the humanity, nobility and justice.

مقتل العقل المدبر لتنظيم «داعش» في الرقة البريطاني جنيد حسين
AL-RAQQA:  All rats, no matter how much talent they might have, are going to die in Syria.  This is exactly what happened to the degenerate monster and heretic seen in the picture herein-above.  He was Junayd Hussayn (a/k/a “Abu Hussayn Al-Bareetaani”), a U.K. citizen (natch) of Pakistani origin.  He was reportedly killed in an American aerial attack around the Al-Raqqa area, at the Abu Hayf Fuel Station, last Monday.  Along with him were 3 others who also were vaporized.  According to some sources he stole over $200,000,000.00 American dollars through computer hacking.  He was an electronic warfare wiz responsible for ISIS’s world-wide campaigns of recruitment and propaganda.  Very secretive, he had the full confidence of the Caliph of Cockadoodledoo.  To his family, we extend our middle fingers and wish him and them a prompt descent into Hell.
TURKEY:  The assassinated chief of the “Association of the Falcons of the Ghaab” is robbed of his body organs by his own allies:

Here lies the deserter, Major Jameel Ra’doon, after being deprived of his body’s organs which were harvested in order to be sold to some Zionist.  He was assassinated in Antioch by gangsters who were in the business of trafficking  in body parts.   “You reap what you sew”.  Nyuk. Nyuk.
DAMASCUS:  Syrian Army has ceased withdrawal of  heavy equipment and armor from the town of Al-Zabadaani.  The planned truce has collapsed due to constant violations of its terms by the disorganized terrorist rodents.  So, what that means is that the towns of Al-Zabadaani, Al-Faw’ah and Kafrayyaa will continue to suffer material and human losses for the time being.  In fact, of interest to some readers might be the fact that scores of terrorists in Al-Zabadaani were exploring an Amnesty offer from the government.  All that was for naught once the truce fell apart.

Mass Crowd Floods Beirut Streets in anti-Corruption Rally

Local Editor

Lebanon: Anti-corruption rally (#YouStink)Thousands of citizens waving the Lebanese flag and holding banners to denounce corruption and the politicians' failure to manage the state converged Saturday on Martyrs' Square in Downtown Beirut.

Citizens had marched from the Interior Ministry in Sanayeh at 5:00 p.m. to Martyrs Square to take part in a mass rally organized by the 'You Stink' campaign and other civil community organizations.

Shortly after the march began, the Internal Security Forces posted on its official Twitter page that it "completely respects the citizens' freedom of expression and peaceful protesting rights." ISF members marched in front of protesters as they made their way through the streets towards the square.

Protesters that joined the march were chanting against corruption and politicians.

People, including children and the elderly, started arriving in the early afternoon to the square to protest against the country's political class for mismanaging the economy and failing to provide basic services such as electricity, water and trash collection.

Buses and minivans were seen transporting people from the southern city of Sidon, the northern city of Tripoli and from Baalbek and Hermel in east Lebanon to join the rally.
"Game over," a banner held by one protester read.

Some demonstrators held banners that read "We have no electricity, no water... remove the garbage" and waved Lebanese flags.

Others held a large banner saying: "We want to hold you accountable."

The rally also saw the participation of several syndicates, most prominently the Union Coordination Committee, which has been demanding that the state endorse a new pay scale for public employees for years.

Demonstrators, angered by the government’s failure to provide basic services, have held protests for the past week in Downtown Beirut.

Rallies last weekend, which managed to draw thousands to the city's center, saw clashes between security forces and protesters.

The You Stink movement held a press conference Friday ahead of Saturday's rally to announce their political manifesto.

1,000 Gaza Children Disabled by Israeli Attack

Local Editor

Palestine: Gaza childrenMore than 1,000 Palestinian children in the Gaza Strip sustained permanent disabilities during last year’s 51-day Zionist military onslaught, according to Defense for Children International (DCI), an NGO devoted to children’s rights.

In a report entitled “Operation Protective Edge: A war waged on Gaza's Children”, released on Tuesday, DCI’s Palestine unit said last year’s Zionist offensive had led to the injury of more than 11,000 Palestinians, including 1,000 permanently disabled by the violence.

The children’s rights organization also noted that, a full year after the Zionist assault, thousands of victims -- including a number of children -- continued to suffer from their injuries and the attendant psychological trauma.

The Gaza Strip, with some 1.9 million inhabitants, is known to be the world’s most densely populated area.

On July 7, 2014, the Zionist entity launched a major offensive against the coastal territory - dubbed “Operation Protective Edge” - which finally ended on August 26.

Over 51 days of fierce bombardment by air, land and sea, more than 2,147 Palestinians were killed, including 578 children, 489 women and 102 elderly persons.

Another 11,000 Palestinians were injured during the onslaught, 3,303 of whom were children, according to a report by the Palestinian Health Ministry.
