The scene of Syrian bloodshed continues for the eighth year in a row, and grave violations accompanying genocide continue, including the ongoing influx and exacerbation of the refugees and displaced persons, the interruption of millions of children from education, the lack of medical care, and above that the plight of detainees and enforced disappearances.
In addition to the current direct impact of the violations that have persisted since 2011 until now, we see before us the massive future effects, which will be perhaps more deeper, painful, and broader, and it is expected to cross the Syrian borders to reach the neighbouring countries, and even the countries receiving refugees.
Despite all these past, present and future violations, the international community has not shown a reaction commensurate with the size of the crime, not even with formal media and political standards, as political consensus and quotas between countries have led to the cessation of naming the main perpetrators, especially the regime and its allies, and all international investigations have ended up in documenting Crime but refraining from naming criminals.
An analysis of the work of the international community with regard to the violations that took place in Syria shows a state of great contradiction between the political interests of states and the values carried by the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
The failure of the international community to protect the principles of international human rights law, even at its minimum levels in Syria, has in fact led to an unprecedented weakening of these principles worldwide, as it is no longer possible to talk about human rights as a principle in international relations, even in its moral dimension, The principle of escaping justice is devoted to the form of agreements approved by the major Powers to protect the perpetrators!
The Syrian Human Rights Committee, as it recalls that Syria was a founding state of the United Nations and a participating country in preparing the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, it calls on international organisations to do their duty to pressure governments to restore the spirit of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, and to preserve the human rights legacy that was built from 1948 until today.
