Syria Blasts Evacuation of White Helmets as 'criminal'

Monday, 23 July 2018 08:38 AM

DAMASCUS, Syria (AP) — Syria's Foreign Ministry has called the evacuation of members of the White Helmets to Jordan a "criminal process" that revealed the role of Israel, the United States and other western allies in propping up what the government considers a "terrorist group."

In a statement Monday, a foreign ministry official called the evacuation a "smuggling operation" that also reveals Israel's involvement in the Syrian war despite its claims to the contrary. The unnamed official said the cooperation of the U.S., Britain, Jordan, Germany and Canada also implicates them in supporting the group.

The overnight evacuation was an unprecedented operation coordinated among those countries to extract over 400 members of the search and rescue group from along the volatile frontier with the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights, where they were besieged by Syrian troops.
