A senior Syrian official confirmed Saturday that campaigns to unmask Israeli crimes will continue, the official SANA news agency reported.

"Israel is afraid of uncovering its crimes to the international public opinion," the news agency quoted Presidential Political and Media Advisor Bouthaina Shaaban as saying.

During a meeting for the Syrian Civil Campaign for Celebrating Jerusalem the Capital of Arab Culture (SCCCJCAC), Shaaban stressed on the cultural resistance which has unveiled the reality of Israel to the world, the report said.

Israel rejected holding an international investigation into its assault against the Gaza-bound international aid flotilla as the investigation would lead to exposing the real face of its criminal entity, such as displacement of Palestinian civilians and demolishment of their homeland, Shaaban added.

She also hailed the sacrifice presented by the pro-Palestinian activists for the just cause of the Palestinians, confirming that the siege-breaking campaigns will continue, SANA said.

The Gaza-bound Rachel Corrie aid ship, which is under control of the Israeli navy, docked at southern Israel's Ashdod port Saturday afternoon.

The latest tension between Israeli navy and pro-Palestinian activists came five days after at least nine people were killed and dozens of others were injured in a raid by the Israeli military on a Gaza-bound international aid flotilla with more than 600 people on board.
