Foreign Ministry: Syria condemns the racist Praver-Begin plan in Negev.

Damascus, (SANA)- Syria condemns in the strongest terms the racist Prawer-Begin plan that would lead to the confiscation of 800,000 dunams of land and forced displacement of 40,000 Palestinians in Negev, in addition to the destruction of 36 villages, the Foreign and Expatriates Ministry spokesman said Monday.

"This racist plan to build settlements comes in the context of Israel going too far in the process of ethnic cleansing against our Palestinian Arab people and land confiscation and displacement of Palestinian residents," the spokesman added in a statement to SANA.

He stressed that the Prawer-Begin plan is part of the racist ethnic cleansing policies that Israel has practiced against the Palestinians in occupied Palestine since 1948 with the aim to Judaize the land and put an end to what is left of Palestine Cause with its historical, geographic, demographic and heritage dimensions.

The spokesman described the Prawer-Begin plan as "dangerous" and that it constitutes a blatant violation of the international law and its principles, particularly those related to human rights.

"Syria demands that the international community moves immediately to stop this plan and deter the occupation forces and hold them accountable for their unilateral violations of the international law," the spokesman told SANA.

He stressed Syria's call to stand by the Palestinian Arab people in the face of these racist Zionist measures so as to bring them to a halt as they pose a threat to the security and stability in the region.
