Syria UN envoy says militants kill civilians
Syrian Ambassador to the UN Bashar Ja’afari says militants backed by Saudi Arabia, Qatar and Turkey are killing Syrian people.
According to Press TV, Ja’afari on Friday denied the use of bombs against people by government forces by saying, “No. What you see on TV is publicity. …We are not killing our own people.”
The Syrian envoy added that Saudi Arabia, Qatar and Turkey are supporting the militants, who mainly come from Chechnya, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Tunisia, Libya and Saudi Arabia and said that they “are killing people” in Syria.
Ja’afari also denounced some members of the UN Security Council and its secretariat for refusing to hear the truth about the situation in Syria.
The Syrian ambassador said those countries themselves are “deeply involved” in “spreading terrorism” across Syria.
Syria has been gripped by deadly violence since 2011. Reports say some 140,000 people have so far been killed and millions of others displaced due to the crisis.
