If the Security Council was unable to carryout Resolution 2139, adopted on 22 February, 2014, which states: “all parties immediately cease all attacks against civilians, as well as the indiscriminate employment of weapons in populated areas, including shelling and aerial bombardment, such as the use of barrel bombs.”, the Security Council at least should press on the Syrian regime to stop targeting vital places, which are usually crowded, such as schools, hospitals, markets, bakeries, and places of worships. This report highlights the documented attacks against vital facilities. It is worth noting that what we documented was the minimum due to the many practical obstacles we run across during our work.
SNHR affirms, through its investigations, that there were no military points or presence in these places before or during the attacks. The Syrian regime should justify its brutal attacks before the United Nations and the Security Council.
