General assembly meets in Syria

By Naila Missous

The United Nations General Assembly will vote today on a new resolution calling on Syrian President Bashar Al-Assad to put a stop to deadly attacks on civilians.

The resolution, drawn up by Saudi Arabia and Qatar and was given to member nations on Tuesday 14, also conveys support for the Arab League’s plan to end the 11-month crackdown in Syria and calls for the naming of a UN special envoy.

The move comes after Russia and China vetoed a second Security Council decree on the crisis in Syria on February 4, because they said it was “unbalanced.”

The revolt has now entered its 12th month and the U.N. General Assembly prepared to take up a symbolic resolution which condemns Al-Assad’s brutal crackdown.

Syrian forces shelled the flashpoint city of Homs for a 13th straight day on Thursday, targeting the opposition stronghold neighbourhoods of Baba Amr, Inshaat and Khalidiya, according to the London-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, an opposition activist group.
