It is also a new attack and a dangerous escalation, which targets our people and our just cause."

"It is a dirty exploitation of the Arab tragic situation as Netanyahu and his groups exploit this situation and practice injustice and tyranny against our people," His  Eminence added in a statement sent to the Syria Times e-newspaper today.
