UN Independent Commission of Investigation “Syria: Violence against Civilians Continues After Ceasefire Agreement” September 16, 11:06 a.m.

The UN’s Independent Commission of Inquiry on Civil War-to-Syria has released a report saying that civil violence, including looting, kidnapping and abuse, including sexual violence, is still lying around after a ceasefire was agreed in March.
On the issue of Syria, where civil war continues between the Assad regime and the rebels, the Independent Commission of Inquiry of the United Nations Human Rights Council released a report on Friday based on an investigation into the situation.

As a result, the ceasefire agreed in March is largely protected, while in areas controlled by the Assad regime, it is said that the detention and torture of civilians by the military, security agencies, etc. continues.

In northern Syria, which is controlled by rebels and others, violence against civilians, such as looting and kidnapping by some forces and abuses including sexual violence, has been side-by-side and has been severely condemned as a war crime.

He then calls on Turkey to make further efforts to stabilize security, as such actions are also taking place in areas managed by neighboring Turkey, which backs insurgies.

In addition, the Investigative Committee points out that 9.3 million people in Syria are in a state of food shortages and that civilians remain in a harsh environment even after the ceasefire is agreed.
