Syria to UN: Saudi, Turkey, Qatar behind Heinous Terrorism
Hours after the terrorist bombings which martyred nearly 150 people in the coastal cities of in Tartous and Jableh, Syria sent letters to the United Nations, blaming Saudi Arabia, Turkey, and Qatar for Monday.
The Syrian Foreign Ministry sent a letter to the United Nations, saying the blasts are a "dangerous escalation by the hostile and extremist regimes in Riyadh, Ankara and Doha."
The letter said the three countries seek to derail UN-brokered peace talks in Geneva and frustrate efforts to stop bloodshed in Syria as well as undermine "remarkable achievements" of the Syrian army against terrorists.
The ministry said the Security Council's inaction in the face of "heinous crimes being perpetrated by foreign-sponsored terrorist groups across Syria has emboldened those regimes that support terrorism to deploy their terrorist pawns to Syria."
The letter also criticized Britain, France and the US over their refusal to label Jaysh al-Islam and al-Qaeda-affiliated Ahrar al-Sham as terrorist groups, saying the approach speaks to their lack of seriousness in fighting terrorism.
Bombings and terrorist attacks, the letter said, will not dent Syria's determination to combat terrorism.
It urged the UN Security Council to adopt immediate punitive measures against the states that sponsor terrorism and undermine international peace and security.
