Syria 'categorically' denies U.S. accusations of mass killings

Syria accused of burning bodies of victims Syria 'categorically' denies U.S. accusations of mass killings

crematorium/">According to Stuart Jones, the acting assistant secretary of state for the Middle East, the government of President Bashar al-Assad executes at least 50 prisoners a day, some in mass hangings.

"The United States is on record, has stated many times, that we are appalled by the atrocities that have been carried out by the Syrian regime", said Stuart Jones, the top USA diplomat for the Middle East.

The Trump administration is a willingness to respond to these massacres done by the Syrian government which also included the use chemical weapons and other deadly killer agents to wipe out some of the many places.

This is a developing story.

The revelations echoed a February report by Amnesty International that said Syria's military police hanged as many as 13,000 people in four years before carting out bodies by the truckload for burial in mass graves.

Jones said the information came from credible humanitarian agencies and from the U.S. "intelligence community" and that as many as 50 people per day are thought to be hanged at Saydnaya.

Nicolette Waldman, who wrote the 48-page report after a yearlong investigation, said the number of people killed may be much higher. According to USA officials, cremations take place at Saydnaya military prison some 30 kilometres from Damascus, as the Syrian authorities hide acts of mass murders.

"This was an opportune time to remind people about the atrocities that are being carried out inside of Syria all the time, of which this is one discrete, additive piece of evidence", said Jones.

Jones said that the Assad government, in his words, "has treated opposition forces and unarmed civilians as one and the same - committing widespread violations of worldwide law, including the law of armed conflict and human rights law".

MICHELE KELEMEN, BYLINE: Human rights groups have documented mass executions and torture at the Sednaya prison, which Syria has denied.

"The continued brutality of the Assad regime, including the use of chemical weapons, presents a clear threat to regional stability as well as the national security interests of the United States", he said.

The consecutive USA administrations have been keen to make up lies to justify their aggressive policies toward Syria and other countries, said the ministry, calling the prison crematorium accusations as a "new Hollywood narrative that is totally detached from reality". While Assad allies Russian Federation and Iran may not have had anything to do with the crematorium, they are complicit in the brutal dictator's many other atrocities, according to the U.S.

Last month, the US fired cruise missiles on a government air base after accusing Assad's military of killing scores of civilians with a sarin-like nerve agent.
