United Nations says the United States of America broke international law in killing top Iranian General, Qasem Soleimani according to saraacarter.com.
The United Nations Special Rapporteur on Extra-Judicial Executions, Agnes Callamard has revealed that the United States broke international law in killing Qasem Soleimani. The report was submitted to the UN on Monday and is expected to be addressed on Thursday in a meeting, Business Insider revealed.
Qasem Soleimani was a top General for Iranian Revolutionary Force, an organization the United states designated as a terrorist one. But the recent report provided by Agnes Camallard spells out that the United States provided ‘insufficient evidence’ on the matter. “Accordingly, in the light of the evidence that the United States has provided to date, the targeting of General Soleimani, and the death of those accompanying him, constitute an arbitrary killing for which, under International Human Rights Law, IHRL. the United States is responsible” the statement read
The report added “major Qasem Soleimani was in charge of Iran military strategy and actions, in Syria and Iraq. But absent an actual imminent threat to life, the course of action taken by US was unlawful”
General Qasem Soleimani together with his associates were killed in an airstrike operation on January 2 2020 in Baghdad international airport.
Pentagon says the top General was responsible for the killing of over hundreds of Americans and her allies in the region.
