Recently published photographs of people allegedly tortured by the regime of Syrian President Bassar al-Assad brought out the Nazi comparisons Wednesday by Syrian opposition leader Ahmed Jarba.
Speaking to the Geneva II talks, he said, “The pictures of torture are unprecedented except in the Nazi camps during the Second World War.”
The photos were provided by a Syrian military photographer who defected and showed evidence of the methodical murder of more than 11,000 people arrested by Assad’s forces.
The pictures are grounds for charging Syrian President Bassar al-Assad with war crimes, but his regime rejected the timing of the release of the report prior to the Geneva II conference as “categorical evidence that its goal … is to undermine efforts aimed at achieving peace in Syria.”
