Ambassador Haitham Abu Saeed, Commissioner for the Middle East at the International Commission for Human Rights, stressed that the presence of the Turkish regime forces in Syria is an occupation and a flagrant violation of international law, indicating at the same time that the United States and some Western countries are trying to prolong the crisis, especially by politicizing humanitarian issues.
Abu Saeed said in a statement to Sputnik: “There is an illegal presence of the Turkish army on Syrian soil .. These are Syrian lands,” stressing that the Turkish regime headed by Recep Tayyip Erdogan is not entitled to dictate any will or request because its presence in Syria is illegal and illegal. ”
Abu Saeed added that the terrorist organizations affiliated with the Erdogan regime are using civilians in Idlib Governorate as human shields and preventing them from leaving through the safe passages under different addresses.
Abu Saeed pointed to the false allegations and false accusations that have been received by some parties on humanitarian issues since the beginning of the crisis in Syria.
Abu Saeed denied the allegations that hundreds of thousands of civilians were displaced in Idlib towards the borders with Turkey and said: “The numbers that the Americans are trying to falsify in international forums are exposed and talking about a million people is inaccurate and has nothing to do with reality.”
Syria's permanent representative to the United Nations, Dr. Bashar Jaafari, stressed during a session of the Security Council on the sixth of this month that Syria will not fail to do its duty to rid its citizens in Idlib of the crimes of terrorist organizations and the liberation of every inch of its territory, expressing his surprise at the call of some countries to hold an emergency session of the Council Security around Idlib, while its members ignore the condemnation of the acts of aggression, occupation, and pillaging carried out by the Turkish regime in Syria and its support for terrorism there.
