U.S. accuses Syria of mass executions and burning the bodies

United Nations Special Envoy for Syria Staffan de Mistura attends a meeting during Intra Syria talks at the U.N. in Geneva Switzerland Tuesday U.S. accuses Syria of mass executions and burning the bodies

As many as 70 prisoners are being held by the Syrian government in cells created to hold just five, Jones said.

These new accusations about an alleged crematory are part of a campaign of lie fabrication and creating false allegations persistently practiced by successive U.S. administrations with the aim to justify its policies of aggression and intervention in sovereign states, the source said.

In a Monday press briefing, the State Department told reporters the Syrian government has been hanging roughly 50 detainees a day at the Saydnaya military prison, located about 45 minutes outside Damascus, according to the Associated Press.

The Syrian government has built a crematorium near a prison to cover up "mass atrocities", a State Department official said Monday, according to a CNN report.

The U.S. government has long accused Assad of a large list of human rights abuses, including multiple chemical attacks - the most recent of which killed almost 100 civilians and children in March, and drew a retaliatory missile strike from the United States.

The Syrian government affirms that these allegations are "totally baseless" and are fabrications made by the United States administration and its agents. He ended his statement by calling on Russian Federation to demand that the Syrian regime stop its "horrific violations" of worldwide law.

The allegation could test the Trump administration's willingness to respond to atrocities, other than chemical weapons attacks, that it blames on President Bashar Assad's government.

Protest to save Dharna Chowk in Hyderabad turns violent
The Hyderabad police commissioner had earlier granted permission to both the groups to hold protests today at the "Dharna Chowk". Dharna chowk is a common place for staging dharnas by all political parties and social organisations since decades in Hyderabad.

"Beginning in 2013, the Syrian regime modified a building within the Sednaya complex to support what we believe is a crematorium", Jones said.

The Amnesty report said an average of 20-50 people were hanged each week at the Saydnaya military prison north of Damascus.

The State Department said the information about the mass cremations came from human rights watchdogs and nongovernment intelligence sources.

He also expressed doubts about a recent Russia-brokered deal to "de-escalate" the 6-year-old Syrian civil war, which bore Russia, Iran and Turkey as guarantors.

Two children were killed by government artillery fire in the rural town of Rastan two days ago, while another woman was killed in an air strike in the village of Kafrlaha on Tuesday, according to Abou Rayan.

On May 15, ahead of the Geneva peace talks aimed at trying to find a solution to the Syria conflict which has killed more than 320,000 people since it broke out more than six years ago, United Nations mediator Staffan de Mistura said that the discussions in Switzerland should benefit from a tighter format - and the recent Astana agreement to create the de-escalation zone.

Video from the group showed rescuers pulling children from the rubble of a multi-story building.
