BEIRUT, LEBANON (2:00 P.M.) – Syrian President Bashar Al-Assad called out Amnesty International for their allegations of mass executions during his interview with Yahoo News on Thursday.
Assad would begin his discussion on Amnesty International by attacking their reputation and bias in their reporting on the six year long Syrian Conflict.
“Amnesty International has always been biased and politicized,” Assad told Yahoo News during his interview.
The Syrian President would later add that the allegations made by Amnesty International regarding the mass executions at Saydnaya were claimed without proof.
“Amnesty International’s report on Syria doesn’t have a shred of evidence,” Assad added.
Amnesty International currently has no offices or employees in Syria; their allegations were based on testimonies from opposition activists living abroad.
