Assad's Abbatoir: How the Syrian regime hanged 13,000 in one prison alone.

** WARNING: GRAPHIC DESCRIPTIONS BELOW **

Amnesty International has just released a truly horrific report on mass executions of civilians in one of Syria's major prisons. It's based on the testimony of dozens of individuals who were in the prison including detainees, guards and judges.

In Saydnaya prison which is near Damascus, witnesses report between 20 and 50 prisoners being taken from their cells every week, tortured into giving confessions and then being hanged. Others - who were in cells one floor above the killing floor - report the gurgling sound of their dying colleagues as they choked to death on the rope. Young prisoners whose weight was not sufficient for them to die during the hanging were pulled down and had their necks broken by guards.

The figures are for 2011-15 so it's not unreasonable to wonder if another 2-3,000 have been killed since then. It's also reasonable to assume that similar activites are going on in other Syrian prisons.

This article contains even more horrific descriptions.

How many of this alleged figure of 13000 were ISIS butchers or their supporters and does AMNESTY have the figure for the number of civilian prisoners killed by ISIS?

"Mass hanging and extermination"

The phrase used above in the Amnesty piece suggests a bias against the Assad Govt (not "regime").

Re the first question - not many, apparently. Most were ordinary civilians.

I haven't seen a figure for the second question but there may be one out there.

What about Libya? Amnesty International, Soros funded, has no credibility.

If it's all a fabrication, then Assad could disprove the whole thing in one fell swoop by allowing independent monitors into the prison in question. So why does he refuse to do that?

Amnesty has been compromised and politicised for years

for example:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Suzanne_Nossel

"Executive Director of Amnesty International USA, from January 2, 2012 to January 11, 2013"

"Prior to her tenure at Amnesty International, she served as the Deputy Assistant Secretary of State"

"She has served as a senior fellow at the Century Foundation, the Center for American Progress and the Council on Foreign Relations"

Amnesty is also funded by some dubious sources

Land Destroyer: Amnesty International is US State Department Propaganda
(good article, worth a look!)

No doubt many of the grunts on the ground grubbing for money for Amnesty are well meaning, but they would do well to research the organisation further.

Especially the use of Amnesty funds to pay for huge golden parachutes for retiring figures such as Irene Khan and Kate Gilmore

And if Amnesty are being set loose on another media hatchet job on Assad then it does not bode well for peace in Syria.

Maybe set up a no fly zone too and allow NATO and the Saudis kill more Syrians. NATO's terror groups have been singing this song since day 1. They no longer sing of Aleppo where their lies were exposed. Amnesty International should be outlawed and its capos jailed.

So this didn't happen then? Is that your contention.
Of course it is nonsense, all part of a discredited "regime change" campaign

Are you also contending this didn't happen?

what are "independent monitors"?

are they like "dark energy"?

i.e. Something people say exists but so far there is no actual proof they do.

Any independent voice if you could find one would quickly realise that there has been a systematic political and media campaign and backing of jihadist proxies with arms, training and funding in order to destroy syria and get rid of Assad so the Qatar gas pipeline can proceed. And once they started pointing this out they would be fired to be replaced by a more compliant voice who says what they are told to say about Assad and the war in Syria.

The mukhabarat have been killing people in Syra's prisons for decades, and there can't be any doubt that they would have ramped it up during the civil war. Syria's prisons were the destination of choice for the US when they were doing a bit of 'rendition', because if the mukhabarat couldn't get it out of you there probably wasn't anything to get out after all.

Now getting to the report, this is all about the scale of the killings. I would accept nothing about Syria's civil war at face value. I hope it isn't true, for obvious reasons, and hope that this report is another propaganda story. I don't doubt Amnesty's belief that it is true, but that doesn't mean that it is true. Time will tell, but it won't be verified in the lifetime of this thread.

And that was only one of his prisons ...
In another, they ran out of space to store dead bodies

The link for this in the OP goes to AlJazeera whom Hillary Clinton has previously described as a great news channel and which was mired in a scandal and multiple high profile resignations when it came to light that their reports were being run past CIA personnel for approval

Note that AlJazeera is largely funded by Qatar.

i.e. the same folks who funded jihadists in Syria and Libya and who are the ones who would most benefit if Assad was toppled and their gas pipeline to europe through Syria was to go ahead.

Still trust this "story"? :p
