Bachelet warns against exacerbation of human rights violations committed by the Turkish regime & terrorists in the north of Syria

Geneva (ST): The UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Michelle Bachelet has warned against the aggravation of human rights violations committed by the Turkish regime and the terrorist organizations affiliated to it in the areas it occupied to the north of Syria.

In a statement published on the internet by UN High Commission for Human Rights, Bachelet said that during the past few months gross violations were perpetrated in the areas of Efrin, Tel Abyad and Ras al-Ein and other nearby areas including killing, abduction and confiscation of lands.

She added that the infighting between terrorist organizations stationed in these areas resulted in the fall of civil victims and the destruction of infrastructure, stressing that these terrorist organizations seized houses of civilians and public and private properties.

Bachelet went on to say that the UNHCR has documented acts of abduction for children and women demanding that the Turkish regime abide by international law and guarantee the halt of the crimes committed by the terrorist organizations stationed to the north of Syria.

She indicated that international law bans the destruction of any infrastructure facility such as water plants because these acts endanger civilians’ lives, referring that the terrorist organizations affiliated to the Turkish occupation cut off water of Allouk water plant several times endangering the lives of one million people in the city of Deir Ezzour and its vicinity.
