Amnesty International has accused the Assad regime of violating international law when it killed 115 civilians in raids on the ISIS-held city of Raqqa in November.
The organization also reported that war crimes may have been committed by the regime in this region. Amnesty International claimed that regime air strikes carried out on Raqqa between November 11-29 led to the deaths of 115 civilians, including 14 children, with a probability that these strikes deliberately targeted civilian areas.
Amnesty’s Middle East Director, Philip Luther, said "some of these attacks bear all the elements of war crimes."
The organization considered in its report that the Assad regime is apathetic towards the massacre caused by these raids while at the same time it refuses to recognize civilian casualties.
