Syria: All-out repression: Purging dissent in Aleppo, Syria
Since anti-government protests intensified in Aleppo in early 2012, Syria’s security forces and armed militias working alongside them have responded with all-out repression. Syria’s largest city has now slipped into an all-out conflict between government forces and armed opposition groups that is claiming more civilian lives every day. This report documents the increasingly widespread repression and highlights key dynamics which led to spiralling violence. The report concludes that the Syrian government is responsible for mass human rights violations amounting to crimes against humanity in Aleppo.
