The Greek coast guard ships try to drive and harass the rubber boats of the refugees seekers and attempt to sink them, which led a few days ago to the drowning of a Syrian child in the sea off the Greek coast, and whatever the story is, securing the life of the rubber boat riders is the primary task of the coast guard of any country and transporting them to the nearest safe place on the land is in accordance with international agreements, not to drive them away and try to overturn their boats or drown them, not to be indifferent to the safety of their lives, especially since the passengers in this case fled the displacement and attempts to kill them by a regime that practices war crimes and backers who do not care about the value of life.
The 1982 United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea (UNCLOS), the International Maritime Search and Rescue Convention (SAR) of 1979 and the International Convention for the Protection of Human Life at Sea (SOLAS) of 1974 obligate the signatories to save the lives of people at risk of drowning. Obligation is primarily the right of states, and it also applies to ships carrying the flags of countries that sign such agreements.
The Syrian Human Rights Committee calls on the Greek authorities to abide by international agreements and stop threatening the lives of Syrian refugees fleeing by sea to Europe and allowing them to cross to their destination to gain a degree of safety and to resume a fruitful life.
