World watches as Syria dies: Turkish presidential aide

World Bulletin / News Desk

Assad regime’s use of chemical and conventional weapons is not only killing Syrian women and children but also humanity itself is dying, Presidential aide Ibrahim Kalin said in his column on Wednesday.

Writing for the Daily Sabah, Kalin evaluated the recent incidents in Syria following the regime's chemical attack in Idlib on April 4.

"Syria is dying while 'the world is watching.' With chemical and conventional weapons used by the Assad regime, not only Syrian women and children but also our humanity is dying," he said.

The presidential aide also called out UN’s failures.

"The UN has stopped counting the dead in Syria on the grounds that the numbers cannot be verified. The reality is that the UN, like the rest of the international community and the most powerful nations in the world, has scored one failure after another in stopping the bloodiest war of the 21st century."

The attack on the town of Khan Sheikhun, Idlib, northwestern Syria -- which is blamed on the Bashar al-Assad regime -- killed some 100 people and injured more than 500 others.
