Crimes Against Humanity in Aleppo, Syria - the Assassination of Civilians

The United Nations(UN) human rights office is confirming the summary execution of civilians, including children and women, by regime forces, in Aleppo, Syria. Reliable evidence regrettably confirms the on the spot assassination of 82 civilians by Syrian forces, the BBC-News reported.

Eastern Aleppo, which had been in rebel hands for some four-years, is being blasted into submission by the forces of Bashar al Assad, supported by heavy bombardment from Russian forces. The remaining thousands of civilians in eastern Aleppo, have been forced onto a small corner to the south. There, as regime forces enter, they are going house-to-house killing civilians on sight, the UN reported. Among the confirmed 82-assassinated civilians, 13 are children and 11 are women.

"We're filled with the deepest foreboding for those who remain in this hellish corner," of eastern Aleppo, remarked UN human rights office spokesman, Rupert Colville. Additional reports confirm bodies lying in the streets with residents afraid to remove them for fear of being shot on the spot. Moreover, other reports confirm the presence of children trapped in buildings that are under attack by regime forces.

Yet, the over powering forces of the Assad regime backed by Russia, have denied a truce for trapped civilians to be evacuated. 

Aleppo has clearly fallen. The crimes against humanity being committed in Aleppo are not the first of the prolonged Syrian conflict. The gross failings by the international community and by the alleged stalwarts of freedom, democracy, equality and the rule of law, to mitigate and to grant relief and solace to the Syrian people, are blemished scars upon the integrity of humankind to protect those who are frail and exposed to violence. Yet, sadly, there will be more Aleppos.
