The Syrian Network for Human Rights (SNHR) has reported that it documented at least 50 attacks on vital civilian centers in September, perpetrated by both the Assad regime and the PYD terrorist militia.
In its monthly report, the Network revealed that the Assad regime was responsible for 19 of these attacks on vital centers in Idlib and Aleppo provinces. The report documented 30 attacks on educational facilities, 5 on medical facilities, and 8 on places of worship.
The report strongly emphasized that the indiscriminate and disproportionate bombing operations carried out by the PYD militia constitute a clear violation of international humanitarian law.
The report also noted a continuing escalation in ground attacks by Assad regime forces in northwestern Syria, with the pace increasing since the beginning of August.
According to the evidence collected, the attacks were deliberately directed against civilians and civilian objects. The Assad regime and Russian forces were found to have committed various crimes, including extrajudicial killings, and their indiscriminate bombings resulted in the destruction of facilities and buildings.
The report underscored the urgent need for the Assad regime to halt indiscriminate bombing operations, particularly those targeting residential areas, hospitals, schools, and markets. It called for the cessation of the use of prohibited munitions and explosive barrels, and urged compliance with UN Security Council resolutions and humanitarian customary law.
Furthermore, the report called upon the UN Security Council to take additional measures following the issuance of UN Resolution 2254. It stressed the necessity of referring Syria to the International Criminal Court and holding all those involved accountable, including the Russian regime, whose involvement in committing war crimes has been substantiated.
