Crematorium for refugees in Syria: Fruit of sick imagination

  • US Syria is burning bodies to hide proof of mass killings

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.

The House is expected to vote Wednesday evening on bipartisan legislation that would impose new sanctions on the Syrian regime of Bashar al-Assad for war crimes and human rights abuses against civilians, sources with the House Foreign Affairs Committee confirmed. Jones attended the talks.

Assad's regime, Jones said, had detained between 65,000 and 117,000 people over the same period.

Galant said that as bad as Syria was, it was just a minor player in the drama of evil unfolding in the Middle East - and that when Assad was gone, the next target needed to be his sponsor, Iran. "The (Assad) regime must stop all attacks on civilian and opposition forces".

The latest satellite photograph presented by the state department dated to January 2015, more than two years ago.

"We call upon Russian Federation to use its influence with the Assad regime to get it to adhere to a lasting negotiated ceasefire".

Syrian opposition spokesman Salem Meslet said the US allegations that the Syrian government had built a crematorium to cover up its mass killings were "credible" and not surprising.
