The Syrian Network for Human Rights (SNHR) said that it had documented 896 violations of the “cessation of hostilities” agreement since it took effect on February 27. Nearly 129 people, including 28 children and 11 women, were killed in these violations, SNHR added.
The watchdog group added that the Assad regime, Russia and the PYD militias are responsible for the overwhelming majority of these violations. The violations included military operations, arrest and blocking of aid entry to besieged areas.
The Network added that 381 people have been detained since February 27, including 333 at the hands of regime forces people, and 48 by the PYD militias. The network pointed out that no progress has been made with regards to the release of detainees as stipulated by the agreement. It added that the detainees’ whereabouts and their fate have not been revealed, and their relatives were allowed to contact or visit them.
SNHR also said that the Assad regime has not yet given full access for humanitarian aid, adding that no blockades have yet been lifted. Sieges across Syria still cause malnutrition among civilians trapped in besieged areas, the latest of which is the Hula area in Homs province. (Source: Syrian Coalition)
