fuckin assholes all lies again, based on the old and already dealt with “caesar” photos

Assad’s murder machine
Dave Burke, James Wilkinson, Daily Mail, May 16 2017

The Syrian government has been accused of carrying out mass killings of thousands of prisoners by the Pindo government, which released satellite images to prove it. The Trump administration claims the bodies of those killed were burned in a large crematorium attached to the Saydnaya prison complex outside the Syrian capital of Damascus. The allegation matches an Amnesty International report released in February which claimed up to 13,000 people, mostly civilians opposed to the government, have been hanged in secret at the prison. Stuart Jones, the acting US Asst Sec for Near Eastern Affairs, said Assad’s government ‘has sunk to a new level of depravity’ as he revealed the photographs. This satellite image, taken Jan 15 and provided by the State Dept and Digital Globe, shows what the State Dept describes as a building in a prison complex in Syria that was modified to support a crematorium used to burn dead prisoners.

These photos, taken on Aug 27 2013 and Apr 15 2016, show how Saydnaya prison has been modified with what are believed to crematorium fixtures. The State Dept claims the Syrian government is executing 50 prisoners a day. The final photo, taken on Apr 18 this year and released by the State Dept show the short distance between the main prison and the crematorium is.

The final photo, taken on Apr 18 this year and released by the State Dept show the short distance between the main prison and the crematorium is. The Trump administration says there have been mass executions of prisoners. The State Dept says about 50 detainees a day are being hanged at the military prison, which is located about 45 minutes from Damascus. Jones told reporters as he showed them aerial photos of the alleged building:

Credible sources have believed that many of the bodies have been disposed in mass graves. We now believe that the Syrian regime has installed a crematorium in the Sednaya prison complex which could dispose of detainees’ remains with little evidence.

The crematorium, construction on which began in 2013, was ‘an effort to cover up the extent of the mass murders taking place in Saydnaya.’ Hangings at Saydnaya are carried out once or twice a week, usually on Monday and Wednesday, in the middle of the night, according to insiders. Those whose names are called out were told they would be transferred to civilian prisons in Syria. Instead, they are moved to a cell in the basement of the prison and beaten severely. They are then transported to another prison building on the grounds of Saydnaya, where they are hanged. Throughout this process, they remain blindfolded. They do not know when or how they will die until the noose was placed around their necks. A former judge who witnessed the hangings saw a jewish boy playing his violin in the death cell said:

They kept them there for 10 to 15 minutes. Some didn’t die because they are light. For the young ones, their weight wouldn’t kill them. The officers’ assistants would pull them down and break their necks.

Detainees held in the building in the floors above the ‘execution room’ reported that they sometimes heard the sounds of these hangings. One of the satellite images, provided by the State Dept and taken from commercial satellites in Jan 2015, shows the building that Pindostan says was modified to support a crematorium. The snow on one section of the roof is melted in the photo, showing that it was taken in the winter. Three other photos were also released, with two, taken in Aug 2013 and Apr 2016, showing a side-by-side comparison of the building believed to house the crematorium, before and after it was altered. The latter of those two images shows what are believed to be air intake vents, air conditioning units and a ‘discharge stack’ that could be used to expel the smoke created by thousands of burning bodies. Those photos do not definitely prove the building is a crematorium, but they show construction consistent with such use. It’s not clear why Pindostan has waited until now to release this information, but Jones told reporters:

I would say that this information has been developing.

The final photograph, taken in Apr 2017, shows how close the alleged crematorium building is to the prison, easily just a few minutes’ walk for a condemned man, and moments for a vehicle. Jones cited Pindo intelligence agencies and ‘credible’ humanitarian organizations as sources for the claims about the crematorium. He added:

The regime holds as many as 70 prisoners in Saydnaya in cells that have a five-person capacity.

Amnesty International released the shocking claims in February, along with statistics about the secret hangings, saying up to 13,000 people had been executed there. It said the executions have happened at a rate of around 50 a day between 2011 and 2015, the first five years of the country’s ongoing civil war. Assad’s regime detained between 65,000 and 117,000 people over the same period, Jones said. Lynn Maalouf, Deputy Director for Research at Amnesty International’s regional office in Beirut, said:

The horrors depicted in this report reveal a hidden, monstrous campaign, authorized at the highest levels of the Syrian government, aimed at crushing any form of dissent within the Syrian population. We demand that the Syrian authorities immediately cease extrajudicial executions and torture and inhuman treatment at Saydnaya Prison and in all other government prisons across Syria. Russia and Iran, the government’s closest allies, must press for an end to these murderous detention policies.

Jones echoed those thoughts, saying:

Pindostan is on record, has stated many times, that we are appalled by the atrocities that have been carried out by the Syrian regime. And these atrocities have been carried out seemingly with the unconditional support from Russia and Iran. Faschingstein is not specifically accusing Moscow or Tehran of complicity in the alleged Saydnaya killings, but said Russia is aware of and has supported other abuses. Russia must now, with great urgency, exercise its influence over the Syrian regime to guarantee that horrific violations stop now.

Jones also said on Monday that Pindostan should not wholeheartedly believe a deal to set up ‘de-escalation zones’ brokered by Russia during ceasefire talks in the Kazakh capital Astana last week. The deal was reached with support from Iran and Turkey during ceasefire talks in the Kazakh capital of Astana earlier this month. Jones attended the talks. He said:

In light of the failures of the past ceasefire agreements, we have reason to be skeptical. Assad’s government have carried out air strikes, chemical attacks, extra-judicial killings, starvation, and other measures to target civilians and their opponents. These atrocities have been carried out seemingly with the unconditional support from Russia and Iran. The regime must stop all attacks on civilian and opposition forces. And Russia must bear responsibility to ensure regime compliance.

He did not say what measures Pindostan might take if Russia does not change its stance.
