“We’ve Never Seen Such Horror” --- Human Rights Watch --- Shocking report on crimes against humanity committed by Syrian security forces in past two months. Details of systematic killings, beatings, electroshock torture and detention of people seeking medical care (54-page PDF)

Crimes against Humanity by Syrian Security Forces

This 54-page report is based on more than 50 interviews with victims and witnesses to abuses. The report focuses on violations in Daraa governorate, where some of the worst violence took place after protests seeking greater freedoms began in various parts of the country. The specifics went largely unreported due to the information blockade imposed by the Syrian authorities. Victims and witnesses interviewed by Human Rights Watch described systematic killings, beatings, torture using electroshock devices, and detention of people seeking medical care.
