Jordanian lawyers: Coercive measures imposed on Syria are terrorism

 A delegation of Jordanian lawyers have denounced the unilateral American coercive measures imposed on Syria, especially the so-called Caesar Act, stressing that it is economic terrorism that violates all international laws and targets the Syrian people.

A delegation from the lawyers of the Amman -based Palace of Justice, headed by Attorney Asif Musa Barghash, visited the Syrian Embassy on July 5.

Barghash stressed solidarity with the Syrian people and army in the face of these unjust measures that came as a result of the Syrian rejection of American dictates.


Barghash said that rejecting the so-called Caesar Act is  in Jordanian and Palestinian interest  because its goal is to seize Palestine and Jordan through what is called the ‘Deal of the Century.

In turn, members of the delegation expressed their confidence in the ability of Syria and its people to thwart these measures.

For his part, the Chargé d'Affairs of the Syrian Embassy in Amman Dr. Shafiq Dayoub said that the fate of the so-called Caesar Act will be failure like any other previous American coercive measures, indicating that its goal is to pressure Syria to accept the “Deal of the Century”.
