Syria condemned Israel’s handling of the Palestinians but did not mention an assassination in Damascus believed to be Israel’s doing. “The Israeli army has become a band of murderers working to wipe out Palestinian civilians,” Syrian Foreign Minister Farouk al-Sharaa said in a United Nations address Monday. But the Syrian fell short of mentioning Izzadin Sheik Khalil, a Hamas military chief killed by a car bomb in Damascus on Sunday.
