The Lebanese national resistance movement Hezbollah has condemned as a highly dangerous terrorist act the interception of an Iranian passenger plane by two US warplanes in the Syrian airspace.
In a statement on Friday, Hezbollah said that the US warplanes’ hostile act of intercepting an Iranian civilian plane carrying on board Lebanese passengers requires a firm international stance,” stressing that the US is an occupation power in the Syrian territories and airspace.
Former Lebanese Foreign Minister Adnan Mansour told SANA correspondent in Beirut that the recent Israeli acts of aggression against Syria confirm Israel’s evil intentions to undermine national Arab security. He reiterated that such flagrant aggressions must be faced by a unified Arab stance, because Syria, in its war on terrorism, is not only defending itself, rather it is defending all countries of the world.
In the same context, the Gathering of Lebanese National Parties and Forces condemned the illegal presence of American troops in Syria.
It also condemned the act of intercepting an Iranian aircraft by US warplanes in the Syrian airspace, stressing that this American aggression indicates the continuity of the US policy of arrogance and criminality which violates all international laws and norms as well as all moral and human values.Hezbollah: Interception of Iranian passenger plane by US jet fighters a highly dangerous terrorist act
