Breaking news has reported several deaths in different parts of the country. A citizen from Al-Sanamayn (a part of Daraa’) reported that 23 civilians were killed there while 15 people were killed in Daraa’. Another source mentioned that 3 were killed in Homs and 4 in Latakia.
The SHRC views the usage of live ammunition on peaceful protestors and the inhumane procedures taken against them which have resulted in the death of a large number of them as acts which violate Syrian and international laws and conventions. Such acts break the president’s promises given yesterday stating that no civilians will be targeted following the death of tens of them last week. Therefore, the authorities have failed to protect the lives of the people and the international community must be addressed to fulfil its commitments towards the conventions and treaties made to protect civilians and the Syrian people from the hands of the security forces.
