there's a report on our. russia warns against placing the blame for a massacre in this seriously to who that certainly on the government is saying a position government may also have been involved. in as the syrian conflict drags on it's being fueled by weapons of flowing from neighboring lebanon where illegal arms dealers are driven by profit and behave. last after weeks of violence student protests in canada and hundreds of arrests and talks over tuition hikes are set to resume but it's no longer just about soaring fees.
you saw russia and around the world this is our she was an e.u. national power thanks for joining us first russia says both the syrian government and opposition gunmen are to blame for the deaths of more than one hundred civilians including over thirty children in the city of houla over the weekend speaking after a meeting with his british counterpart in moscow foreign minister sergei lavrov warned against assigning blame for this massacre let's now get the details from the north so you go russia's top diplomat says both sides in this year in conflict may be at fault what is his reasoning. well russia is calling for an international investigation to be held looking into what happened in houla while the west including the united states and great britain are pointing their fingers at our side while the foreign minister elavil off says that it's too early to make any conclusions since it's clearly the situation is not one sided at all. you know pretty good you the u.n.
security council on sunday the head of the international peace mission in syria confirmed that in houla there were signs of artillery shelling but there were also many coops is we've had fired from close distance and signs of a slaughter both sides apparently had a hand in the deaths of innocent people including women and children this is very is under the control of the militants and it's also surrounded by government troops the u.n. security council has asked the u.n. observer mission on the ground to press to gateway exactly happened in houla movie in the loop if moscow is not lifting the responsibility from assad for the violence but says that equal pressure has to be applied both on the authorities and on the opposition and it's vital not all the for them to put their weapons down and sit down peacefully negotiate but also for the international community for all the outside players to reach one a unified position and so get out of says that only in that case the coffee on and
peace plan which is currently the only way out of this crisis be fulfilled and the foreign minister also outlined that moscow is in contact both will be authorities and would be of rebels and so the foreign minister believes that some players outside but within the region are giving other signals to the rebels which are not aimed at fulfilling the peace plan but are actually violating kind of posting calls for foreign military intervention and sort of go off as called on these players to make up their minds whether they want regime change or stop all of the killing off people. reporting that many thanks indeed for that how date. the rebels are adamant that the government carried out as the massacre former pentagon official michael maloof says the details of the killings suggest
a third party was and. there's been allegations that there were gangs that are under the control of the government but the whole area was actually here is actually under the control of the free syrian army so i don't see how the government forces could have come in systematically killed all these people up close like that the opposition has been infiltrated by al qaeda that is. i think you have certainly more radical elements that are coming in and plus are getting much more exotic arms in order to. arm the opposition itself. and as this triflin syria the rebels are getting strong support from lebanon everything from medical treatment to weapons and we have a notion now reports it's not just profit driving the daily deadly trading. so it shows off. this is five thousand dollars and this is thirteen hundred
