The Syrian government has stepped up indiscriminate, heavy bombardments of cities while rebels are executing prisoners condemned in their own makeshift courts without due process, UN investigators said on Monday.
"Some groups are exercising or trying
to exercise civilian authority without due process of law. So we have allegations for example of sentences being imposed on various people, arrested and captured soldiers and so on, without due process and then being executed, as well as some families," said Vitit Muntarbhorn, a member of the commission of inquiry on Syria, noting that these were war crimes under the Geneva Convention.
