Syrian MP to ST: Occupied Syrian Golan won’t Remain under Occupation

Syria’s military option to liberate the occupied Golan from Israeli occupation has never been an exceptional one – since 1967- and all international charters and laws guarantee Syria’s right to retake the occupied territory by all means, according to the Syrian Member of Parliament Waleed Darwesh.

The parliamentarian, whose hometown is Quneitra province, told the Syria Times e-newspaper: “The Syrian state has respected and has abided by UN resolutions related to the occupied Syrian Golan and it has resorted to political diplomacy in dealing with the Zionist enemy’s violations. However, after the effrontery of US president Donald Trump who annexed Syrian Golan to ‘Israel’, the situation won’t remain the same.”

Gloria La Riva to ST: US is engaged in covert military actions against Venezuela

Damascus,(ST)-Is the danger of US military intervention against Venezuela near? What is the best workable way to resolve Venezuela crisis peacefully?

The British political analyst Dr. Marcus Papadopoulos believes that Washington and London are playing the tactic of good cop/bad cop concerning the occupied Syrian Golan in order to strengthen their pivotal ally, Israel, and thereby enhance their own influence in the Middle East.

“Donald Trump's decision to recognize the occupied Golan as sovereign Israeli territory, which has no basis under international law and is a gross violation of the UN Charter as well as Syria's territorial sovereignty, will have been discussed by Washington with London before the decision was made public.  And it goes without saying that Mr.

Pompeo Returns Empty Handed

The visit by US Secretary of State, Mike Pompeo, to Lebanon coincided with an illegitimate declaration by President Trump, who recognized the annexation of the Syrian Golan to the Israeli entity. Trump's recognition is not deplorable to a man who has lost his mental powers, and the American decision will only affect the isolation of America.

Sen. Richard Black to ST: Trump's Golan Move is Inconsistent with International Law

Virginian State Senator Richard H. Black has told the Syria Times e-newspaper that besides influencing Israeli elections, the United States is financially vested in controlling the occupied Syrian Golan because Halliburton, an American oil company, is actively engaged in exploring for oil and national gas under the auspices of the Israeli government.

He has asserted that this act is being done in clear violation of International law.

The Senator’s remarks came in response to a question on the reasons behind US President Donald Trump’s recognition of the occupied Syrian Golan as ‘Israeli territory’.
