Biased report to achieve political goals


From the very beginning of the crisis in Syria, the UN and its bodies have been used to achieve political objectives that serve the states involved in the conspiracy hatched against Syrian people. The Human Rights Council’s dealing with the state in Syria in each session, since more than five years, has revealed an unprecedented case of provocation and politicization.

Some countries which have a black record of human rights’ violation, call for holding special sessions for the council, and formulate messages and decisions pretending their commitment to the rights of the Syrian people, while this contradicts their behavior and their endeavors to prolong crisis in Syria through supporting terrorism and seeking to obstruct the cessation of hostilities agreement.

Credibility of the UN reports will remain incomplete as long as they are built on a political approach that distorts reality and ignores a war waged on Syria where terrorism is used as a tool to realize political goals. The exploitation of this Council and its mechanisms should be halted.

"immediately suspend” Saudi Arabia from the UN Human Rights Council

 Amnesty International and Human Rights Watch have called on the United Nations General Assembly to “immediately suspend” Saudi Arabia from the UN Human Rights Council because of numerous serious human rights violations.

“Saudi Arabia has committed gross and systematic violations of human rights during its time as a Council member, and it has used its position on the Council to shield itself from accountability for its violations in Yemen,” the two human rights watchdogs wrote in a joint letter to the UN on Wednesday according to RT.

They were referring to the actions of the Saudi-led coalition in the Yemeni conflict that resulted in numerous casualties among civilians.

The two organizations said they documented “69 unlawful airstrikes by the coalition, some of which may amount to war crimes,” that took lives of at least 913 civilians and hit homes, markets, hospitals, schools, civilian businesses, and mosques.

The human rights NGOs also stressed that the Saudi-led coalition used internationally banned cluster munitions in 19 strikes, some of which also targeted civilian areas.

Close relations linking ISIS with Erdogan's regime

The relations of the ruling Justice and Development Party (AKP) with ISIS are “dirty” ones. There are joint points between ISIS thoughts and AKP ideology and leadership particularly that of President of the Turkish regime Recep Tayyip Erdogan. 

Erdogan supports all terrorist organizations in Syria including ISIS, Jabhat al-Nusra and Ahrar al-Sham to realize his Ottoman dreams and did not hesitate to establish all secret and public relations with all terrorist groups in Syria with the aim of destroying it and displacing its people.

Erdogan's dirty role in plundering Aleppo factories

Apart from the political and military conspiracy launched by Recep Tayyeb Erdogan's regime against Syrian people, Erdogan has been playing another dirty role through employing gangs to plunder the factories and industrial facilities in Aleppo and its countryside.

The Turkish government represented by Rajab Tayyip Erdogan must compensate for the damage that the owners of the affected facilities suffered which is estimated at more than USD 5.2 billion.

Turkey fueling Syria crisis with West green light: Analyst

 Press TV has conducted an interview with Mike Harris, an editor with the Veterans Today from Oregon, about the deteriorating humanitarian situation in northern Syria and the role of foreign players in the conflict there.

The following is a rough transcription of the interview.

Press TV: Looking at the deteriorating situation in northern Syria, what do you think is behind this terrorist infighting that is taking place and also trapping many many civilians in the process?

Harris: I think the trapping of the civilians is really an effort on the part of Daesh and other terrorist groups to use these civilians as human shields to use them as hostages. The terrorists are aware that their protection is weakening. They’ve been protected by Saudi Arabia, Turkey, Israel and of course elements of the US. Their protection’s weakening and they’re afraid. They’re going to be wiped out, which is what needs to happen to them. So, they’re looking to take as many civilian hostages as they can in order to leverage them for free passage out of the country into Turkey probably.
