Syria has demanded the United Nations Security Council to assume its responsibilities and condemn the Wednesday’s two terrorist attacks in Damascus.
During the council’s session Wednesday on “trafficking in persons in conflict situations”, Acting Charge d’ Affairs of the Syrian delegation to the United Nations Munzer Munzer expressed Syria’s strong condemnation of the Council’s failure to condemn the terrorist explosions hit Damascus last Saturday.
He demanded the council to condemn Wednesday terror attacks in Damascus in order not to continue (the council), due to the obstacles set by some western member states, in sending wrong messages to the terrorists that “there are bad terrorism and moderate terrorism” according to the concept and the behavior of those countries.
He stressed the importance of the council’s session to shed light on the trafficking in persons phenomenon as one of the most dangerous threats facing humanity that is basically linked with the spread of terrorism.
Munzer touched upon the violation of the rights of hundreds of thousands of Syrians in the areas dominated by armed terrorist groups, including ISIS, Jabhat al Nusra and other groups supported and funded by permanent members of the Council.
He said that Syrian citizens have been exposed to the most heinous slavery by armed terrorist groups as women and minor girls were kidnapped and obliged to marry terrorists, particularly foreigners and the minor boys were recruited and trained to become terrorists and suicide bombers.
Munzer accused the neighboring countries which hosted the displaced Syrians in the refugee’s camps of not committing to their international law obligations represented by ensuring safety and security to those who fled the terrorist groups’ crimes to become victims of trafficking in persons gangs.
