Iranian Resistance: Massacre in Aleppo is one of the worst war crimes of the century

In a statement, the Iranian Resistance has strongly condemned the atrocities taking place in Syria. The statement (which can be read in full on the National Council of Resistance of Iran’s, NCRI, website) condemns the international inaction in relation to the catastrophe in Aleppo. They say that this inaction has jeopardised peace, not only in the region, but in the rest of the world too.

“The Iranian Resistance strongly condemns the ruthless bombings of Aleppo, the massacre of children, especially the bombardment of hospitals and the killing of patients and the wounded, as well as the inhuman siege of the city. The NCRI calls on the world community to take urgent action to stop these bombardments and put an end to the criminal siege of Aleppo, which are widely perpetrated by the Iranian Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) and their proxies.”

The relentless bombing of residential areas which is burying children alive and “premeditated attacks” on civil defence centres and hospitals is creating the 21st version of the Holocaust, the statement said. They called on the perpetrators to be brought to justice. 

“The appalling silence and inaction on this barbarism has deeply hurt the conscience of the temporary humanity and gravely jeopardized peace and tranquillity in the region and the world.”

The Resistance expressed its admiration of the “heroic and innocent” people of Syria. They said that their endurance “in this unequal war is a great and unforgettable pride for humanity”. The Resistance is optimistic that the Assad regime will be overthrown and the Iranian regime’s IRGC, their agents and their allies will be defeated. “The Syrian dictatorship is doomed to fall.”
