Syrian troops may have committed crimes against humanity

Amnesty International pointed out that Syrian military troops may have committed crimes against humanity when they crushed protests in the town of Tel Kelakh in May, Urging the United Nations to refer Syria to the International Criminal Court, the human rights group indicated that nine persons died in custody after being captured during the operation in the town, close to the Lebanese border.

Amnesty International considers that crimes committed in Tel Kalakh amount to crimes against humanity as they appear to be part of a widespread as well as systematic attack against the civilian population. It further said, “What it described as a “devastating security operation”, several men were arbitrarily arrested and tortured including people already wounded, in response to largely peaceful demonstrations against President Bashar al-Assad.
