Syria told the U.N. Security Council on Friday that no one cares more about the Syrian people than the psychopath Baschar al-Assad’s government after the United Nations accused rival parties in the five-year conflict of war crimes by starving civilians. When Assad believes the West is stupid, he will always fabricate propaganda.
In fact, Assad cares so much, he gassed his own people, tortured tens of thousands, had his Shabeeha thugs rape women, is ethnically cleaning Syria of all Sunnis, is starving its civilians, and is killing the rest when hs is not doing the other deeds. There is not one act of violence Assad has not done to harm his people.
The Security Council met to discuss the case of about 180,000 starving Syrian civilians besieged by government forces and about 12,000 in areas controlled by opposition armed groups.
It is the second meeting the council has held on the issue this week after images emerged of starving civilians in the town of Madaya, which is besieged by pro-Syrian government forces as well as hezbollah. International relief organization Medecins Sans Frontieres (MSF) said it has confirmed 35 deaths from starvation in Madaya.
“The primary responsibility for this suffering lies with the party maintaining a siege,” deputy U.N. aid chief Kyung-Wha Kang told the council.
U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon said on Thursday that Syria’s warring parties, particularly the government, were committing “atrocious acts” and “unconscionable abuses” against civilians.
The civil war was sparked by a Syrian government crackdown on a pro-democracy movement in early 2011. Islamic State militants have used the chaos to seize territory in Syria and Iraq, and some 4.3 million Syrians have fled the country.
The United Nations says at least 250,000 people have been killed, 6.6 million people in Syria have been displaced and 13.5 million need humanitarian assistance.
