(Web Desk)Damascus has complained to the UN about Turkey’s military campaign in northern Syria, denouncing the operation as “an assault and occupation” of the Syrian territory.
Ankara continues to “spread lies” about its military aggression against Syria and tries to justify the action as an act of self-defense, Syrian Foreign and Expatriates Ministry said in two letters addressed to the UN chief and the Security Council chairman.
“The Syrian Arab Republic stresses that the presence of any foreign military operations on its territories without its overt approval is an assault and occupation, which will be dealt with on that basis,” the ministry said.
The Turkish operation on Syria, it said, constitutes a violation of the UN Charter.
The Syrian Foreign Ministry further urged the UN Security Council “not to allow any state to use force in a way that contradicts international law or to depend on the charter to justify its aggressive atrocities.”
