BEIRUT, LEBANON (7:00 P.M.) – German Chancellor Angela Merkel condemned the Syrian government for what she described as the “massacre” of civilians in the ongoing conflict in Syria, during an address to the German parliament’s lower house in Berlin on Thursday. Her comments follow a recent spike in violence in and around the embattled Damascus suburb of Eastern Ghouta.

The chancellor criticised the “awful results in Syria,” drawing attention to the deaths of children and the destruction of hospitals in the war-torn country.

According to the German leader, Foreign Minister Sigmar Gabriel is set to speak with Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov on the issue, adding “we must all do everything within our power to bring this massacre to an end, ladies and gentlemen.”

Merkel also reiterated the importance of a strong EU to help in finding a solution to the conflict in Syria and elsewhere, as well as finding a solution to migration issues, saying that Europe must “continue to work resolutely to tackle the causes of migration.”

What planet is Merkel on?
Does she not know that the fanatical, barbarous jihadis in East Ghouta have been shelling civilian quarters of the Syrian capital for years? Only last week they targeted a school, killing children.
Not surprisingly, the Syrian government has had enough and has tasked the Army with expunging this nest of psychopathic vipers once and for all. And all reasonable people will cheer them on.

the traitorous scum is an east german demochristian who would allow sharia law in Germany if it hurt Russia. These people have shamelessly betrayed European and Christian values , have financed and armed jihadists all over the middle east and have the face of talking about the “innocents killed” by those trying to reverse their misdeeds. It will come a point where this woman will have to choose if staying on the side of the international zionist crime ring that is ruling US policies, or on the side of the citizens of Europe. But don’t waste any hope on her,… Read more »

“we must all do everything within our power to bring this massacre to an end, ladies and gentlemen.” Well they did everything within their power to bring the massacre/s to Syria after Libya and Iraq and now protests to much. Europe will be undergoing changes and alliances are falling apart for so many reasons that is hard to keep up while the Zionist strangle hold and their MSM psy-ops are failing to carry the day. The awakening has been happening for a decade now and is swelling in numbers. We are seeing Empire in its death throes. Not all the… Read more »

I see, for Ms Merkel, killing terrorists is the same as making a massacre. Is she worry about german mercenaries terrorists in Syria ? maybe, that would not be a surprise. Ms Merkel wants to see children, women, and old man killed by terrorists, but she does not want to see terrorists killed by Syria-Russia armies, that is too bad for her and occident.
