Prosor: Assad Has No Right to Lead His People

Israel’s Ambassador to the United Nations, Ron Prosor, condemned Syria in a speech he made on Monday at a special meeting of the United Nations General Assembly.

“Assad has no moral right to lead his people,” Prosor said, adding, “The images of frightened women and children, helpless in the streets must be engraved in all our consciousnesses. The international community must act immediately to stop the systematic killing of children and innocent civilians.”
