Demonstrations took place in towns and villages of rural Aleppo to condemn the war crimes the Assad regime is committing against detainees as the regime continued to issue death notices for detainees who died under torture in its prisons.
Local activists said that human rights and media activists organized sit-in protests after Friday prayers in the towns of Marea and Souran in northern rural Aleppo. They held signs denouncing the widespread, systematic abuse and torture against detainees in the prisons of the Assad regime.
Residents of the town of Akhtarin also gathered in the central square chanting slogans condemning the international silence on the atrocities taking place in the prisons of the Assad regime. They called on the international community to exercise pressure on the Assad regime to release the remaining detainees in its prisons.
Residents of the towns of Hayyan, Al-Bab, and Azaz and in northern rural Aleppo also held funeral prayers for victims of torture in the prisons of the Assad regime.
Meanwhile, German Welt newspaper published a report on victims of torture in the regime’s prisons. It pointed out that the Assad regime is well aware that Iran and Russia will not give it up, so it will get rid of anyone who is an obstacle in the way of restoring full control of Syria.
The newspaper said that the families of the deceased did not know anything about their loves ones for many years. The news of their death was an inevitable result of the repressive regime ruling over Syria, the newspaper said, noting that the Assad regime fully regained its repressive authority. The regime is now announcing the death of political prisoners without the slightest fear of consequences. (Source: Syrian Coalition’s Media Department)
