Syrian Arab Republic
Practice Relating to Rule 150. Reparation
In 1998, during a debate in the Fifth Committee of the UN General Assembly, the Syrian Arab Republic stated:
Israel’s financial obligations under General Assembly resolution 51/233 represented only a minute part of the consequences of the Israeli attack on the UNIFIL compound at Qana, and were nothing compared with the lives of the victims, namely the United Nations soldiers and the Lebanese civilians seeking protection at the compound. In accordance with the principles of international law, Israel … must be forced to comply with resolution 51/233 so as to avoid establishing a precedent.
The Report on the Practice of the Syrian Arab Republic asserts that the Syrian Arab Republic considers Article 91 of the 1977 Additional Protocol I to be part of customary international law.
