The Syrian Foreign Ministry spokesman Jihad Makdissi gave a statement about the massacre near the Syrian city of Homs. The Spokesman of the Syrian Foreign Ministry refutes that the Syrian army or other official Syrian forces are responsible for the “Houla massacre” in Syria.

Jihad Makdissi said that the Syrian army and the security forces defend themselves and are responsible for the protection of the Syrian civilians.

The Syrian Foreign Ministry spokesman Jihad Makdisi also said that this horrible massacre in Syria calls for a meeting of the United Nations (UN) to investigate who is committing this violence and bloodshed in Syria. Makdissi also calls for an investigation to discover who is behind the financing of such armed groups which are behind this bloodshed.

The Spokesman of the Syrian Foreign Ministry also stated that the Syrian government has established a judicial committee to also investigate who is behind this so-called “Hula massacre” (Al-Houla/al-Houleh).

Jihad Makdissi confirmed in his speech about the horrible events in Syria that he has already spoken with the UN-Arab League envoy Kofi Annan, who will arrive in Syria soon – perhaps already on Monday.

The atrocious method of killing innocents does not in any way suit to the ethics of the Syrian Army and the Syrian security forces. The methods of the committed massacres speak for the responsibility of armed radicals and do not implement that Syrian troops are behind this massacre.

    The UN Security Council has strongly condemned the murder of 108 men, women and children in the Syrian village of Houla. According to initial reports, many of the victims were executed at point blank-range. The Syrian government has flat-out rejected responsibility for the murders – saying a third-party is behind the slaughter – aimed at destabilizing the situation. Syria’s largest and best armed rebel group reacted to the slaughter saying it won’t abide by an international ceasefire unless the UN intervenes. RT’s correspondent Anastasia Churkina, has more on the Security Council’s response. Also the rebels are adamant that the blame for the Houla massacre lies with the government. But former Pentagon official Michael Maloof says the rebels’ side of the story just doesn’t add up.
