The UN says Soleimani’s killing was “Most Likely” illegal
The killing of Qasem Soleimani was “most likely unlawful,” UN Rapporteur on extra-judicial executions Agnès Callamard tweeted.
She said the targeted killings “violate international human rights law,” adding that “outside the context of active hostilities, the use of drones or other means for targeted killing is almost never likely to be legal.”
She further argued that “drone killing of anyone other than the target (family members or others in the vicinity, for example) would be an arbitrary deprivation of life under human rights law and could result in State responsibility and individual criminal liability.”
At least six people were killed alongside Soleimani in the drone strike. The UN Rapporteur said the killing of other individuals alongside Soleimani was “absolutely” unlawful.
Shocking that Leftist love them some Muslim Terrorist.
A BETTER IDEA WOULD HAVE BEEN TO HAVE USED AN INDELIBLE PAINT/PERMANENT UV MARKER BOMB ON THE IRIAN FILTH. THAT WOULD HAVE DEMONSTRATED AMERICA'S ABILITY TO PINPOINT A MOVING TARGET AND ZAP IT BUT SHOW THAT WE WERE CAPABLE OF EXERCISING DIPLOMATIC RESTRAINT.
THE LOW LIFE OCCUPANTS OF THE VEHICLES WOULD PROBABLY HAVE DROWNED IN THEIR OWN SWEAT AND EXCREMENT AS THEY ALL SHIT THEIR PINK FRILLY KNICKERS.
TRUE,IT WAS ILLEGAL AND IF IT IS NOT THEN IT SHOULD BE. TRUMP WENT AND ATTACKED QASEM IN HIS HOMETOWN OR COUNTRY BECAUSE HE CLAIMS THAT QASEM WAS OF THREAT TO THE U.S. WHEN TRUMP WAS ASKED WHY HE HAD KILLED,NO POINT OF CORRECTION''MURDERED QASEM SOLEIMANI'' HE SAID AND I QUOTE ''I WAS ONLY TRYING TO PROTECT THE U.S CITIZENS",THEN LATER HE CHANGED HIS STATEMENT AND SAID "I DIDN'T KILL QASEM TO START A WAR,I KILLED HIM TO STOP A WAR"THERE IS NOTHING MUCH TO SAY ABOUT TRUMP OTHER THEN LETTING PEOPLE KNOW TRUMP IS A DUMBASS,WHO IS SO RACIST,SELF-CENTRED. NOW HE IS TELLING US TO LOOK BACK AT THE POOR LEADERSHIP OF OBAMA WHEN HE IS DESTROYING THE U.S WITH BOTH HIS EYES OPEN. HE DIDN'T HAVE THE RIGHT TO KILL QASEM.HE IS TRYING TO BRING BACK APARTHEID BUT THIS TIME AROUND US BLACKS WON'T SIT BACK AND WATCH HIM DESTROY US,WE WILL WATCH HIM BURN.
