US Murder of General Soleimani Is a War Crime, UN Special Rapporteur – Syria News

Mrs. Agnes Callamard the United Nations Special Rapporteur on Extrajudicial Killing and Arbitrary Execution speaks about her report on the United States murder of the Iranian top official General Qasim Soleimani in Iraq on the night of the 3rd of January this year.

The UN Special Rapporteur also speaks about the Iranian retaliation to the murder of General Soleimani on the 8th of the same month. Mrs. Callamard considers both the act and the retaliation not in line with the United Nations Charter and the International Law, the USA should not have carried out the bombing and Iran should have refrained from retaliating for the reasons she clarified, had Iran had trust in the United Nations Security Council and had the United Nations had special powers to enforce its charter on all parties.

Mrs. Callamard added: If a similar attack was carried out against an official of any ‘democratic western’ country it would have considered the attack as an aggression and a declaration of war.
