US Points to Assad’s Government On Mass Executions


Time: 8:33  p.m. CEST

The Syrian government, as the Washington Post writes, build and is using a crematorium inside its notorious Sednaya military prison outside Damascus “to clandestinely dispose of thousands of prisoners it continues to execute inside the facility.” About 50 prisoners are executes a day, the Post writes citing Stuart Jones, the acting assistant secretary of the state for the Middle East. According to Jones, the government of President Bashar al-Assad, “has carried out these atrocities and others, “seemingly with the unconditional support from Russia and Iran.” A recent Amnesty International report called Sednaya a “human slaughterhouse.”
