MOSCOW, September 12 (Itar-Tass) — The Syrian leadership believes that the Libyan scenario does not repeat in the country, Syrian presidential adviser Bouthaina Shaaban said.
Speaking at a press conference on Monday, Shaaban said, “As for the fact that the Libyan scenario repeats in Syria, we believe that it is impossible. The people drew the lesson.”
Shaaban said, “Before NATO invaded Libya about 20 people were killed. And now a total of 50,000 people have been killed and 10,000 injured, and 100,000 people remained homeless.”
“And nobody in the West is talking about human rights and refugees. And the figures are huge,” the Syrian presidential adviser said.
Shaaban denies reports saying at least 10,000 people died in Syria.
“According to our data, a total of 700 people were killed from every side,” Shaaban said.
“The U.N. has no such information and one can get it. We have a list of those who died. And we can present it,” the Syrian presidential adviser said.
