Moscow, SANA- Russia’s Permanent Representative to the UN Office in Geneva Alexey Borodavkin affirmed that the US-led coalition systematically destroys infrastructure in Syria and carries out airstrikes against civilians and the Syrian Arab Army.
“While hysteria is being whipped up around Aleppo, the US-led coalition has been systematically destroying infrastructure in government-controlled areas, delivering crushing strikes to civilians and the Syrian Army, and now seems to intend to squeeze ISIS terrorists from the Iraqi city of Mosul into Syria,” Borodavkin said during a special session of the UN Human Rights Council on Friday.
Sputnik news agency quoted Borodavkin as saying that “certain countries continue placing stakes on terrorists and extremists, rendering them political and propaganda assistance, supplying them with arms and ammunition.”
He pointed out that the parties that called for holding a special session of the UN Human Rights Council about Syria are trying to protect terrorists and keep them away from the airstrikes in Aleppo.
Borodavkin noted that the draft resolution, submitted by UK to the Council on Aleppo aims, in its essence, at justifying terrorists’ crimes.
He said that the situation in Aleppo city witnesses changes but those who submitted the draft resolution preferred not to see that, emphasizing that their calls on Syria and its allies to stop the hostilities in the city are meaningless since a humanitarian pause came into force yesterday unilaterally.
