Palestine today opened a new chapter in the history of the region titled victory and preventing the occupation forces from continuing to attack Palestinian land and people. This chapter marked the steely determination and resolve of Palestine’s men and women, its mothers and children, the sacrifice of Palestinian youth, and their courage and their will which is as strong as the stones of Jerusalem.
The Syrian people salute their brethren in all of Palestine, in Jerusalem, Gaza and in every inch of the occupied territories, and also our people in the occupied Syrian Golan Heights.
The Syrian people also salute the women and men inside the Green Line of 1948 who rose up in demonstrations and sit-ins against the occupation practices and attacks. Those remained true to the land, the people, and the cause, demonstrating how the free people are the guarantee of their independence and dignity.
The Syrian people also salute the free men who stand up to the occupation’s aggressions and deter it with courage and pride.
The free people everywhere in the world took action in support of the right cause in Palestine. Meanwhile, absent were the fanfare of the so-called “axis of resistance” who showed deafening silence. For over fifty years, they have been trading in the liberation of Palestine while crushing the people under the pretext of that empty claim. Palestine and the Arab world in general have seen no resistance in them except to the freedom of the peoples and their independence, oppression, killing, and displacement of free people – practices that are as heinous as the practices of the Israeli occupation. This miserable axis does not care for Palestine or Jerusalem whatsoever, as it is busy today with drug trafficking and the killing of free people in Syria, Yemen, Lebanon and Iraq.
The Syrian Opposition Coalition (SOC) stresses the need to put an end to the obnoxious practices of the occupation against Palestinians as it reaffirms that the Syrian people stand by the legitimate rights of the Palestinian people on their land and their right to build their independent state with Jerusalem as its capital, which will remain a Palestinian Arab land. No other party has the right to claim sovereignty over this land, and it will not take long before Palestinians regain all their rights through a just and comprehensive solution that puts an end to violence against them and secures the stability of the region.
The triumph of Palestine today is a triumph of truth over falsehood, of the rightful owners of the land over the transient occupier, and of the will of the people despite the disappointment. We congratulate you, the rightful owners of the blessed land, and we are following in your footsteps.
