(MENAFN) Kuwaiti parliamentarians said that there is a 'secret' agreement to permit genocide in Syria, focusing on the recent changes in Ghouta.
This warning came during a conference organized by Kuwait's National Assembly (parliament), on Sunday, entitled "Ghouta is being exterminated", according to Kuwait News Agency (KUNA).
In his speech, MP Adel Al-Damkhi said: "There are tens of thousands of dead people."
MP Mohammed Al-Dallal said that what is happening in Syria is not just a war. It is rather a "genocide" in which the principles of humanity have collapsed. MP Osama Al-Shaheen said that the current regime's existence in Syria is aimed at "protecting the Zionist entity (Israel)."
Eastern Ghouta, which is home to some 400,000 people, has witnessed deadly violence over the past few days, with foreign-sponsored terrorists launching mortar attacks on the Syrian capital in the face of an imminent humiliating defeat.
Western powers, however, blame the Syrian government and Russia for the crisis.
After losing most of the Syrian territories in their control, foreign-backed militants are now largely concentrated in Eastern Ghouta, causing one of the deadliest stages over the course of the years-long conflict in Syria.
