United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-moon launched a blistering attack on the Government of Syria this morning. His speech to the opening of the UN General Assembly followed a deadly attack on a UN aid convoy on Monday that killed more than 20 people.
“Many groups have killed many innocents but none more so than the Government of Syria, which continues to barrel-bomb neighbourhoods and systematically torture thousands of detainees. Just when we think we cannot get any worse, the bar of depravity sinks lower.
Yesterday’s sickening, savage and apparently deliberate attack on UN-Syrian Red Crescent aid convoy is the latest example.”
