“The evidence of the regime’s atrocities, some of which rise to the level of war crimes or crimes against humanity, is overwhelming,” Jeffrey told the meeting hosted by the Syrian Network for Human Rights.
The Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons has found evidence that chlorine gas was used in attacks in Saraqib, in February 2018, and in Douma in April of that year. Both attacks occurred in rebel-held areas that the Assad regime was fighting to take back. The attack in Douma killed dozens of civilians, while 11 people were injured at Saraqib.
According to the Syrian Network for Human Rights, 150,000 Syrians have been arbitrarily arrested since 2011 and 6 million people have fled the country.
