ICATU condemns the brutal attack on the Syrian citizens in Lebanon and the prevention of them going to the Syrian embassy in Beirut to vote in the presidential elections, and to exercise their constitutional and democratic right and their freedom to choose what represents them.
ICATU condemns the fascist criminal attacks carried out by mob groups born of intolerance and racism. Filled with hatred. Which does not express the truth and will of the Lebanese people, its originality, affiliation, and loyalty to Syria, which made tremendous sacrifices and hundreds of martyrs in confronting the plots of division, settlement and normalization, and in defense of the unity, sovereignty and independence of Lebanon.
Affirms that these barbaric attacks will not discourage the Syrian voters residing in Lebanon from flocking in unrivaled intensity to the headquarters of their embassy and exercising their democratic right and casting their votes in the presidential elections, and the success of this constitutional entitlement, which proves to the whole world the independence of the Syrian national decision and the rejection of foreign interference and dictates.
ICATU calls on the Lebanese security and judicial authority to strictly prosecute the aggressors, refer them to the competent judiciary, impose the most severe penalties for the perpetrators, and not tolerate advocates of racism, intolerance, hatred and hatred.
