Syria Condemns IS Crimes in Iraq at U.N.

The Geneva-based U.N. Human Rights Council (UNHRC) dedicated a session to IS crimes in Iraq

Syria has denounced the crimes committed by the Islamic State (IS) terrorist organization against Iraqi civilians, renewing support for the Iraqi government’s efforts in fighting the group.


During a session of the Geneva-based U.N. Human Rights Council (UNHRC) dedicated to discussing IS crimes in Iraq, Syria’s Permanent Representative to the U.N. office in Geneva, Houssam-Eddin Ala, demanded that the UNHCR issue a clear condemnation of the crimes that IS, the Nusra Front, and the Islamic Front, among other terrorist organizations, are perpetrating in Syria.


Ala warned of the danger posed by "takfiri" terrorist organizations in Syria and Iraq whose crimes have not spared the U.N. peacekeeping forces in the Syrian Golan, also calling for approaching this emerging situation “with objectivity and comprehensiveness” and "away from double standards and selectiveness that have stamped the conduct of several UN bodies, including the UN Human Rights Council, since the onset of the crisis in Syria."
