The armed terrorist groups’ aggression on the mostly Armenian-populated city of Kassab on Syria’s northern border with Turkey has elicited strong local, regional and international condemnations and rage especially that the aggression has been covered and backed by the Turkish government of Erdogan.
Venezuelan Committee for Solidarity with the Struggle of the Arab Peoples and Peoples of the Middle East against Imperialism condemned the aggression, launched by multinational mercenary terrorists backed by the Turkish army against Kassab city in Lattakia.
The Committee said in a statement that these assaults aim at opening a new front against the Syrian people and their leadership, condemning targeting Kassab city and its residents, who are of Armenian origin, in a new phase of the genocide against Armenians launched by Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s government.
“The Committee strongly condemns the criminal policy of Erdogan, the small agent of imperialism and Zionism in the region, as it supports the Turkish people’s struggle for toppling him and suing him for the crimes committed against the Turkish and Syrian peoples,” the statement added.
The Venezuelan Committee saluted “the brave Syrian Arab Army soldiers, who offer their souls for combating the new terrorist aggression against Syria.”
The opposition Change and Liberation Front in Syria labeled the March 20 Turkish aggression on Kassab as “a blatant direct interference” in the line of the crisis in Syria.
The Front warned in a statement issued from a meeting of the Front’s representing parties that Erdogan’s government is playing “a dangerous game from which Turkey will not be unharmed”.
Meanwhile, various Lebanese Islamic and national parties issued a statement denouncing the Turkish government’s involvement in supporting the armed terrorist groups and direct interference in Syria’s internal affairs.
The statement considered the Turkish intervention, which was made more evident recently in the assault on Kassab where Turkish tanks directly and openly backed the mercenary terrorists, as “another face of the Zionist aggression on Syria” and a completion of a plot to undermine and debilitate the Syrian state and army.
