Al-Muallem said: “When we talk about supporting and exploiting terrorism, the current Turkish regime imposes itself strongly as one of the main sponsors of terrorists in Syria and the region. This regime has facilitated the entry of tens of thousands of foreign terrorists into Syria and is still providing all forms of support to Jabhat al-Nusra and its sibling organizations. The terrorist who has taken the blood of the Syrians and practices the policy of Turkification and forced displacement in the lands he occupies in Syria.
Al-Muallem emphasized that Turkey used collective punishment against a million civilians in the city of Hasaka and dozens of neighboring villages because of their rejection of the Turkish occupation by deliberate and repeated water cutting. Covid 19, and this is what constitutes in the science of law a crime against humanity and a war crime. "
Walid al-Muallem explained that Turkey's behavior bears the same criminal ideology that the terrorists practiced when they cut off water to millions of civilians in Damascus in 2017, and of course, without the human rights advocate doing anything.

During his speech, Al-Muallem stated that the continued illegal presence of American and Turkish forces on Syrian lands is an occupation with all the legal dimensions that this entails. Whether directly or through its tools of terrorists, separatist militias, or through any artificial entities that are illegal, all of them are null and void and have no legal effect and constitute a flagrant violation of the sovereignty, independence and territorial integrity of Syria.
