Sunni UN Human Rights chief condemns crushing of Aleppo

“The crushing of Aleppo, the immeasurably terrifying toll on its people, the bloodshed, the wanton slaughter of men, women and children, the destruction—and we are nowhere near the end of this cruel conflict,” the UN’s High Commissioner for Human Rights, Zeid Ra’ad al-Hussein, said on December 13th. “What is happening with Aleppo could repeat itself in Douma, in Raqqa, in Idlib. We cannot let this continue.”

Zeid Ra’ad al-Hussein, who is a Jordanian prince and heir to the iraqi throne, is vocal in criticising the Assad regime but is this because of Sunni sympathies?

And does this apply to other UN bodies, who are condemning the Syrian forces?
