UN chief condemns Syria's fresh military assaults on civilians

Damascus , Sat, 07 Apr 2012 ANI

Damascus, Apr 7 (ANI): United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon has slammed the Syrian government for its latest military crackdown on pro-democracy protestors despite agreeing to a deal to end the violence.

Ban said the April 10 ceasefire deadline was 'not an excuse for continued killing' by armed forces loyal to President Bashar al-Assad.

He said the recent attacks on civilians 'violate' the UN's demands and demanded the government halt military operations, The BBC reports.

According to the report, a statement said that 'Ban deplores the assault by the Syrian authorities against innocent civilians, including women and children, despite the commitments by the Government of Syria to cease all use of heavy weapons in population centers.'

"The 10 April timeline to fulfill the Government's implementation of its (ceasefire) commitments, as endorsed by the Security Council, is not an excuse for continued killing," the statement added.

Meanwhile, activists have claimed that at least 100 people have been killed over the past two days as troops intensified operations.

According to the report, nearly 24,000 Syrians have crossed over the border and moved to Turkey.

Turkey has said it may need UN help after a surge in refugee arrivals. (ANI)
