Marking the 90th anniversary of Iran’s occupation of the Ahwaz region and the 69th anniversary of Syria’s independence, hundreds of Ahwazi and Syrians have organized a demonstration in front of the European Parliament in Brussels, the Belgian Capital.
The demonstration took place to condemn the policies of Iranian occupation and the ongoing anti-human atrocities against the Arab people of Ahwaz and also to condemn Iran’s invasion of Syria and its intervention in the Arab countries, most notably Yemen.
During the demonstration, participants raised the national flag of Ahwaz and the flags of the Syrian revolution and numerous banners in Arabic and English denouncing the continued policies of forced displacement and changing the demographic structure of Ahwazi Arab areas through construction of exclusive vast settlements for bringing Persian settlers.
Important speeches were addressed to the audience regarding Arab national security and the increasing threat of Iranian influence and its terrorism-driven campaign in Arab countries- Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, Yemen and Bahrain and the necessity of Arab countries to build strong alliances to tackle the aggressive Iranian foreign policy which is extending serious repercussions outwards.
The Arab Struggle Movement, in a letter submitted to the European Union, called for urgent intervention to immediately stop the Iranian regime’s arbitrary arrests and executions of Ahwazis. (Source: Syrian Coalition + Al Arabiya)
