NEW YORK CITY, The United States of America – A Syrian Ambassador has directly threatened the Zionist entity known as Israel by saying his country will liberate the occupied Golan Heights.
“We reject any terrorist or aggressive presence on our soil in any form and we will liberate all of our lands, including Golan, Afrin, Idlib and Raqqa,” Bashar al-Jaafari, Syria’s Ambassador to the United Nations stated yesterday.
Afrin and Idlib in northwest Syria are currently occupied by Turkish-backed jihadists while the former ISIS-capital of Raqqa in northern Syria is occupied by the US-backed and Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF).
The Golans however, close to Damascus, has been occupied by Israel since the end of the Six Day War in 1967. The area is home to a large Druze population who are slowly being supplanted by Israeli colonialists despite the region being internationally recognized as a sovereign part of Syria.
