Syria Paying Price for Not Bowing to US, Saudi and Allies

SHAFAQNA – The United States along with its Western and regional allies have imposed a devastating war on Syria, because the Damascus government and the Syrian people have tried to maintain their independence, says Edward Corrigan, a human rights attorney from Ontario.

“They (the US Front) plans to destroy Syria, to punish it for not bowing to the whims of the Saudis, Qataris and Americans.” Corrigan told Press TV.

“The future of Syria has been put at risk” because of the proxy war that the Western powers and their regional allies have been imposing on Syrian civilian population in particular children.

The analyst added, “It has been France, the United States, Israel, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates that have been providing hundreds of millions of dollars to the groups that are trying to overthrow the Syrian government.”

According to Corrigan, Americans and their allies have launched “deliberate campaign to destroy Syria’s infrastructure,” schools, hospitals and bridges.

The attorney also said, there is massive amount of “American arms that have been provided to the Daesh terrorists and other groups,” which have come from Libya and other places into Syria to destroy its infrastructure and to hurt the children, who are the future of the country.

​Foreign-backed militants and terrorists have wreaked havoc in Syria for six years.

The conflict has already claimed hundreds of thousands of lives, displacing millions of Syrian people.

In a Tuesday report, the international charity Save the Children announced that Syrian children are crippled by distress or anger.
