The right to life explains the basis for Man’s existence and is an integral part of the human being. Article (6) of the International Treaty of Civil and Political Rights (provides for each Man to have a natural right to life, which is protected by Law. It is impermissible to deprive any individual of his life in a coercive manner).
Besides, the 3rd article of the World Declaration on Human Rights stipulated that each individual has the right to life, freedom, and personal integrity. The violations of human rights to life in Syria are extremely serious because they are implemented by the regime within the framework of a methodological policy, through the State of Emergency and ad hoc trials along with legislations, advocating the death penalty for holding certain political convictions. This chapter consists of the following three sections:
Section 1: Massive slaughters.
Section 2: Executions according to repressive laws and token trials.
Section 3: Individual assassinations within Syria and abroad.
Section 4: Death in detention centres under torture or because of the spread of disease, and lack of health care.
