Syria: Indiscriminate attacks terrorize and displace civilians
Indiscriminate air bombardments and artillery strikes by the Syrian army are killing, maiming and terrorizing residents of the Idlib and north Hama regions. Every day civilians are killed or injured in their homes or trying to shelter from the bombings. Amnesty International has repeatedly called on the Syrian authorities to put an end to indiscriminate attacks which kill or injure civilians. The organization has also warned the armed opposition groups and their leadership that they should be fully aware that the prohibition of indiscriminate attacks applies equally to them.
