In a report scheduled to be released at the end of the month, Experts from the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights have announced that Iranian military and Lebanese Hezbollah members participated in execution of Syrian soldiers who refrain from shooting towards the protesters, Al Jazeera TV reported on August 5.
This will be the first time that an institution affiliated with the United Nations clearly accuses Iran and Hezbollah of Lebanon, two main ally of Assad’s regime, of involvement in the crackdown on protesters in Syria.
On the other hand, following the brutal repression by the regime of Bashar al-Assad, the White House reacted against this regime for the second consecutive day and announced:
Bashar Assad is in route to go and we should think about the days after Assad.
White house press secretary, Jay Carney said that Assad and his regime belong to the past and the brave Syrian people who protest on the streets determine the future of Syria.
Hillary Clinton, U.S. Secretary of State, said for a second time that Bashar al-Assad lacks legitimacy and announced that Assad’s regime is responsible for killing of 2,000 Syrian citizens of all ages.
