Crematorium for refugees in Syria: Fruit of sick imagination
19 Mai, 2017, 23:38 | Author: Lucrece Courtet
The Syrian regime on Tuesday denied United States accusations that it carried out mass killings at a prison and burned the bodies of the victims in a crematorium to hide the evidence.
The United States has evidence Syrian President Bashar al-Assad's government has built a crematorium at a large military prison outside the capital Damascus, a State Department official said on Monday.
"The U.S. administration's accusations against the Syrian government of a so-called crematorium in Saydnaya prison, in addition to the broken record about the use of barrel bombs and chemical weapons, are categorically false", said the Foreign Ministry.
In a statement to reporters, Acting Assistant Secretary for North Eastern Affairs, Stuart Jones, stated that "Credible sources have believed that numerous bodies have been disposed in mass graves".
While the recently declassified photos do show a building that could be construed as a crematorium, they do not provide absolute proof that this is the building's true goal. Although the regime's many atrocities are well documented, we believe that the building of a crematorium is an effort to cover up the extent of the mass murders taking place in Sednaya. And recall, of course, that this same Assad government is newly emboldened by America's disengagement.
The State Department, which warns USA citizens against all travel to Syria, believes the Assad regime is responsible for killing as many as 50 detainees per day at Sednaya, Jones said.
Jones also said he was not optimistic about a Russia-brokered deal to set up "de-escalation zones" inside Syria.
