Nikki Haley, Permanent US Representative to the UN, while speaking on the protection of human rights at the UN Security Council on March 29, said that Russia and Iran are involved in the Assad regime’s annihilation of the population and civilian infrastructure in Aleppo. The US representative referred to this as “war crimes”.

“Together with Russia and Iran, the Assad regime has destroyed every hospital in eastern Aleppo. Every single one. A quarter of a million people have been left to suffer. These are war crimes,” Haley noted.

The US representative also added that Assad’s crimes are without limit, that pro-government forces in Syria destroy whole residential blocks, and that the Syrian intelligence uses torture, including the “intentional and systematic torturing of children” in order to gain information.

Haley stressed that these developments led to the biggest refugee crisis since World War II.

Previously Haley said that the US should never trust Russia.
