Syrian government has urged the United Nations (UN) to end Washington’s crimes against Syrian civilians, stressing that the U.S. is systematically targeting residential areas.
Addressing the UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres and the chairman of the UN Security Council, the Syrian foreign ministry on Sunday called for the dissolving of the U.S.-led coalition in Syria which is operating in the country without permission from Damascus.
“The U.S.-led international coalition continues to commit massacres against Syrian innocent civilians through conducting systematic airstrikes on the provinces of Raqqah, Hasakah, Aleppo and Dayr al-Zawr on a daily basis,” reads the letter.
At least six civilians were killed and dozens were injured when the U.S.-led coalition conducted a series of airstrikes in Syria’s eastern province of Dayr al-Zawr.
The Syrian government noted that the coalition’s member states continue to support terrorist groups such as ISIS and Nusra.
“Those attacks contributed to the spread of creative chaos, the killing and destruction which fulfill goals of the coalition and the terrorist organizations in destabilizing security in the region, destroying Syria’s capabilities and prolonging the crisis in a way that serves the interests of the Israeli entity,” the letter added.
Since the beginning of the Syrian crisis in 2011, more than 400,000 civilians have been killed.
