Damascus, SANA_ Attempts of the United States and the Israeli occupation entity to change the legal and demographic status of the occupied Syrian Golan are doomed to failure. It is an integral part of Syria and will return to its sovereignty sooner or later.
No one in the world can deny this fact, which has been confirmed by all resolutions of the United States, especially the UN Security Council Resolution No. 497 of 1981 which asserts that the Golan is an occupied Syrian land and that any measures taken by the Israeli occupation authorities on this occupied land are null and void and they don’t have any legal effect.
The people of the occupied Syrian Golan confirmed that the holding of a meeting for the Israeli occupation government in the Golan and the naming of a settlement after US President Donald Trump are invalid procedures and violate the international laws and the UN Charter .
All these procedures will not change the fact that the occupied Syrian Golan is a Syrian territory and the liberation of it is close at hand.
Our people in the Golan will stage a general strike next Tuesday in rejection of Israeli occupation project of wind turbines.
The struggle of our people in the Golan against the Israeli occupation began since 1967. Their heroic resistance is growing and moving from one generation to another.
The national open strike, which was staged in 1982 and lasted for six months, came to declare rejection of the Israeli occupation authorities’ decision issued on December 14, 1981 to annex the occupied Syrian Golan and impose Israeli laws on its people.
UN Security Council Resolution No. 497 was not the only UN resolution to confirm that the Golan is a Syrian.
Since 1981, the UN General Assembly has issued dozens of resolutions which emphasize the invalidity of the occupation’s plans and procedures of imposing its laws on the Syrian Golan and guarantee Syria’s right to restore it.
Washington, with the arrival of President Donald Trump to power in early 2017, intended to change its policy towards the region and began to take concrete measures that serve the Israeli occupier.
The beginning was Trump’s declaration of the occupied al-Quds (Jerusalem)as the capital of the Israeli occupation entity on December 2017 and the transfer of the US embassy to it on May 2018.
Later, Washington attempted to omit the term “occupied” for the Syrian Golan and the Palestinian territories occupied in 1967 in a clear bias and unlimited support to the Israeli occupation entity and a flagrant violation of the resolutions of international legitimacy issued with the consent of the United States itself.
Last March, US Senator Lindsey Graham also gave statements on the occupied Syrian Golan, which express the US administration’s mentality of hegemony and arrogance.
The Trump Declaration on the Golan on March 25, represented highest degrees of contempt for international legitimacy and posed a disgraceful insult to the international community.
The US president has neither the right nor the legal capacity to legislate the occupation, usurp the territory of others by force, and his aggressive policies make the region and the world vulnerable to all dangers and make the world’s peace, stability and security out of reach.
Today, people of the Golan are more determined to continue the struggle. Despite the crimes of the occupier against them and its attempt to steal their land, they continue to confront all the occupation schemes.
Last October, they burned the “election cards” of the so-called “local councils elections”.
They utterly rejected the Zionist settlement plan of setting up wind turbines on an area estimated at 6,000 dunums in the areas surrounding the villages of Majdal Shams, Ein Qania, Buq’ata and Mas’ada aiming at stealing and plundering the goods of the Golan and displacing its people.
Citizens of the occupied Syrian Golan rejected the proclamation of occupation’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to establish a new settlement in Golan named “Trump.”
They affirmed their adherence to the Syrian Arab identity and belonging to their homeland, Syria, confronting all the aggressive occupation procedures.
All the policies of the occupation and its supporters will not affect the will and steadfastness of people of Golan and their adherence to the national identity .
Syria will spare no efforts to liberate the occupied Golan from the Israeli occupation and will go ahead in resistance since it is the only way to retake lands occupied by Israel.
