Israel rebuked Syrian President Bashar Assad at the United Nations on Monday saying he had lost his legitimacy to lead the country.
Ambassador to the UN Ron Prosor called on the international community to step up its actions against Syria to help stop the violence that has left thousands of Syrian protesters dead.
"The image of frightened women and children in the streets of Homs weighs on our consciousness," he told the General Assembly. "The international community must act immediately to stop the systematic murder of innocent women and children."
