Rabat – The Secretary General of the Council of Senior Scholars in Saudi Arabia has denounced the massacre in the Syrian city of Aleppo.
According to Aljazeera, a categorical denunciation of the war in Aleppo and its citizens came in the Secretary General of Senior Scholars Council’s statement on Monday, September 26.
The Council considers the massacre in Aleppo “an aggressive, distractive war” that does not indicate the victory of the Syrian regime and its allies as much as it shows their desperation.
The statement of Saudi Arabia’s senior council highlights that Bashar Al-Assad’s regime and his allies have gone beyond norms, standards, and laws in their crimes. These crimes, continues the statement, have been a source of catastrophes, tragedies, death, and the displacement of hundreds of thousands of people.
The communiqué also calls upon “wise men of the world and decision-makers to recognize the serious ramifications and the devastating effects of this aggressive war, and to respond to people’s consciences and put an end to the war immediately.”
Aleppo, Syria’s biggest city and one of the world’s oldest, has been a ferocious battleground between the Syrian army and the opposition since 2012.
The Syrian regime has forced a siege upon the city and cut supply channels leading to it. According to the Syrian Observatory of Human Rights, the Syrian Army has dropped thousands of barrel bombs in Aleppo, killing tens of thousands of citizens.
