South African Communist Party

9 February 2022 The South African Communist Party (SACP) denounces the missile attack by the apartheid Israeli regime on Damascus, Syria in the early hours of Wednesday, 9 February 2022. This is the second attack by the regime on Syria in ten days. The attack follows consistent military aggression by NATO forces, particularly the United States and Turkey against Syria, the attack by the United States on Syria one week ago included. The African Union can by no means reward with an observer status an apartheid regime that occupies Palestinian and Syrian territories and consistently violates their human rights, peace, stability and hinders their development efforts through land expropriation, occupation, bombardment, killings, maiming and other atrocities. The apartheid Israeli regime has expropriated a vast tract of Palestinian land. It is colonially occupying the affected Palestinian territories and Golan in Syria. The African Union must reverse the unthinkable decision, made by its chairperson Moussa Faki in July 2021 to grant an observer status to the Israeli apartheid regime. The continuous imperialist aggression against the innocent people of Syria causes untold distress. In addition, it impedes Syria’s reconstruction and efforts to rebuild its economy to support lives.
