Al-Marsad publishes its report ‘The Syrian Situation – International Humanitarian Law Violations and the Call for Justice’.
Since 2011 Syria has been devastated by a ferocious civil war that escalated into an internationalised conflict, in which government forces, rebel groups, extremist and terrorist groups, foreign fighters, and international powers are involved. Syria has become the arena in which international issues are at dispute at the expense of civilians. It is Al-Marsad’s view that those responsible for war crimes and crimes against humanity committed in Syria should be prosecuted under international and national jurisdictions, regardless of their political affiliations. Alongside prosecutions, non-judicial mechanisms should also be established to assist with the process of reconciliation for the Syrian people, in the long term.
