Syria Complains to UNSC on Turkey Cross Border Firing, Speaks on Plane Grounding

By Matthew Russell Lee

UNITED NATIONS, October 11 -- Syria through its Permanent Representative Bashar Ja'afari on Thursday morning filed a complaint with the UN Security Council about Turkey's cross border firing.

  Ja'afari told Inner City Press the firing is hostile and provocative, and a joint body with Turkey should be set up to investigate and stop the escalation.

  Inner City Press asked about the airliner grounded in Turkey. Ja'afari said Turkish jets forced it to the ground, despite the pilot indicating he would obey and cooperate. The passengers were kept without water for eight hours, Ja'afari added.

   Would a complaint be filed with the International Civil Aviation Organization? They don't care, Ja'afari said, heading up from the basement where the Security Council meets for now. Upstairs the "post Qatar" General Assembly was meeting about its own revitalization.

   There, Inner City Press was told of a bilateral inquiry by Russia with Turkey about the grounding. One waits to hear from Turkish Permanent Representative Apakan.

   Inner City Press asked Security Council president Gert Rosenthal earlier this week if there had been any follow up on last week's Presidential Statement calling on restraint by both Syria and Turkey. Nothing since Friday [October 5], Rosenthal replied. Well, now there is a new filing. Watch this site.
