The Assad regime deliberately targeted at least 26 vital facilities across Syria in January, according to the Syrian Network for Human Rights. Assad’s air force targeted six popular markets, five schools, six mosques, three medical centers, three ambulances and civil defense vehicles, two universities, and a medical plant.
The network points out that these systematic attacks raise the need to put pressure on the Assad regime to implement the UN Security Council resolution 2139, issued on February 22, 2014, which calls for putting an end to the use of indiscriminate weapons, mainly artillery, aerial bombardment and barrel bombs, in populated areas.”
The network also calls on the UN Security Council to put pressure on the Assad regime to stop targeting vital civilian facilities, such as schools, hospitals, popular markets and houses of worship, as these are wholly civilian installations and do not have any military presence inside or around them.
