The State Department revealed photographs of a crematorium at Syria’s most notorious prison.
The State Department revealed on Monday that they had evidence of mass atrocities inside Sednaya prison, the Assad regime’s most notorious prison near Damascus.
Stuart Jones, acting assistant secretary of the Bureau of Near Eastern Affairs at the State Department, said that new photos had shown the construction of a crematorium, which is used to dispose of the bodies of the murdered.
“The regime is responsible for killing as many as 50 detainees per day at Sednaya,” Jones said.
“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,” Jones said.
Jones pointed out that Sednaya prison is not the only facility at which the Assad regime holds its prisoners. He alleged that the regime had abducted between 65,000 and 117,000 people since the start of the Syrian Civil War.
“These atrocities have been carried out, seemingly, with the unconditional support from Russia and Iran,” Jones added.
