The Syrian Network for Human Rights (SNHR) has reported that Assad regime and Russian forces launched attacks on 78 vital civilian centers in northwestern Syria during the month of October, with a particular focus on the Aleppo and Idlib provinces.
In its monthly report concerning the human rights situation in Syria, issued on Monday, the Network disclosed that it had documented a minimum of 85 attacks on essential civilian facilities in the past month.
The Network noted that these attacks, attributed to both Assad’s and Russian forces, included 27 strikes on educational facilities, 11 on medical establishments, and 13 on places of worship.
The evidence collected suggests that the attacks were deliberately directed at civilians and civilian infrastructure, resulting in the destruction of facilities and buildings.
The report emphasized the necessity for the Assad regime to cease indiscriminate bombing operations, which target residential areas, hospitals, schools, and markets, and to refrain from using prohibited munitions and barrel bombs. It called for compliance with UN Security Council resolutions and humanitarian law.
The report highlighted that the indiscriminate bombing operations conducted by the PYD terrorist militia constitute a clear violation of international humanitarian law.
Furthermore, the report underscored that the Assad regime has repeatedly violated international humanitarian law, customary law, and UN Security Council resolutions, including Resolutions 2139, 2042 regarding the release of detainees, and Resolution 2254, all without facing any accountability.
The SNHR urged the UN Security Council to take further action in accordance with UN Resolution 2254 and stressed the imperative need to refer Syria to the International Criminal Court and hold all involved parties accountable, including the Russian regime for its role in committing war crimes.
