Ban Ki-moon: Syrian government is guilty of civilian deaths in ongoing conflict
Syrian authorities are powerful bosses who feed the war machine, - UN Secretary General
The Syrian government is behind numerous deaths of civilians in the ongoing five years-long conflict. Ban Ki-moon, UN Secretary General, said so during his speech at the 71st UN General Assembly in New York as quoted by Reuters.
The UN leader admitted that the Syrian governmental troops continue to drop bombs on living quarters where peaceful residents live, and systematically torture thousands of hostages.
Ban Ki-moon also mentioned Ukraine, South Sudan and North Korea; he urged the countries’ leaders to serve their people instead of stealing resources.
The military conflict in Syria began in March 2011. The local residents demand resignation of President Bashaar al-Assad. According to the UN data, some 220 thousand people were killed in the conflict by now; the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights reports 292 thousand fatalities.
