UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres has said in the statement that there were “growing risks” of a humanitarian disaster in the northwestern province in case of a military operation. The area has become the last safe haven for al-Qaeda and Nusra terrorists after Syrian troops won back most of the country.

Guterres made a reference to Russia, Turkey and Iran – the so-called Astana group of Syrian peace guarantors – urging them to step up efforts to find a peaceful solution to the situation in Idlib, the last remaining de-escalation zone.

In turn, Syria’s envoy to the UN Bashar Jaafari hit back Thursday at Secretary-General Antonio Guterres for taking the side of countries attacking Syria in his assessment of the crisis in Idlib.

“Here we are talking about our surprise with the statement aligning its position [with] those countries targeting my government and my country… and referring to the threats expressed by the delegates of the US, Britain and France,” Jaafari told reporters.

He accused the three allies – permanent members of the Security Council – of being the ones threatening peace and security in Syria, rather than maintaining it.

“The Syrian government with its allies is the only party that is implementing UN Security Council resolutions pertaining to combating terrorism. Nobody else is fighting ISIS [Daesh] in Syria but the Syrian army supported by our allies,” he said.

Are the UN telling us more lies, they told us the same lie about Daraa and Quneitra and look what happened there. TQI liars. The UN’s worried that an SAA assault on Idlib, might cause a humanitarian crisis there, but there’s already a humanitarian crisis there now, and that crisis is being caused by the rebels. The poor locals have to abide by the laws made by these thugs, and are simply shot if they don’t comply. If they dare to complain about anything, stealing, raping, or anything else. they’re simply shot, family members included sometimes. And anyone even daring… Read more »

António Manuel de Oliveira Guterres, miserable portavoz de EE.UU., no se pronuncia con respecto al genocidio del pueblo Palestino, tampoco de Yemen.

This is just proof that the UN is simply an extended arm of US/Israeli foreign policy….shameful & disgusting to think that they’re now protecting Al-Qaeda linked militants….but it was ok for the Iraqi army to attack & liberate Mosul in similar circumstances.
