Foreign extremists are escalating the conflict in Syria according to a UN commission investigating human rights abuses in the country. The panel’s chairman Paulo Pinheiro reported that Jihadist militants are pushing anti-government fighters towards more radical positions and that Syrian President Bashar Assad has also been receiving foreign help from Iran’s Revolutionary Guards.

Activists say at least 23000 people have been killed in Syria over the past 18 months.

The news came on the day that Israel’s chief rabbi Yona Metzger travelled to Berlin to try to convince German lawmakers that they should overturn the ruling and reach a compromise on how circumcisions should be carried out. Orthodox Jewish practice sees circumcision performed at eight days old.

But some commentators have said that the ruling has proved disastrous for Germany’s image, particularly in the light of the country’s Nazi past.
