UN finds systematic disappearances in Syria

Published: 12.19.13, 16:30 / Israel News

A UN panel probing war crimes in Syria reported Thursday that people around the country are systematically vanishing without a trace as part of a widespread campaign of terror against civilians.

 

The expert panel said it found "a consistent country-wide pattern" of Syrian security, armed forces and pro-government militia seizing people in mass arrests or house searches and at checkpoints and hospitals, then making them disappear – and denying that they even exist. Most of the victims have been young men. (AP)
