Syrian Ambassador to the UN Bashar Ja’afari slammed a Canadian-drafted resolution which attempts to end the Syrian Army siege on the jihadist-held pocket of East Aleppo.

UN members on Friday voted 122 to 13 in favor of the resolution. China, Russia and Iran were three of the 13 countries that voted against it.

“Before calling for holding this meeting and submitting the draft resolution, the Canadian delegation and its partners should have listened to the harrowing accounts about the crimes of terrorist organizations that were told by tens of thousands of our people who were saved by the Syrian army and its allies in Aleppo during the past few days,” Ja’afari added.

He then emphasized that Syria will not be dissuaded by the resolution.

“I would like to reassure the states that sponsor terrorism in Aleppo that the Syrian army has up to this point liberated 93% of the areas that terrorists used to control in Aleppo city, and their bloody games is taking its last breaths,” Ja’afari added.

Addressing the “sponsors” of terrorism, the Syrian envoy also said that “their bloody terrorist game in Syria and in Aleppo is over.”

I don’t think it can really even be called a siege anymore. A siege implies defenders trapped in some secure location, fighting off attackers. There’s not much left to defend at this point, and few left to do the defending.

The United states of america is desperate to stop the purging of their terrorist operatives in East Aleppo. The United States of America is desperate for cancerous cells of their terrorists to remain in the hope ( of America and Europe + the Saudi’s etc ) that the cancer will again spread and flourish.
