Turkey/Russia/Syria: War Crimes in 4 months of bombing al-Bab, Aleppo 



The Turkish-Russian-Syrian coalition committed war crimes, crimes of genocide against the Sunni religious group during a 4 months-long aerial bombing campaign in the heavily populated city of al-Bab in October, November, December 2016 and January 2017.

On December 22, Turkish jets have reportedly conducted airstrikes on Syria’s northwestern city of al-Bab, leaving at least 47 civilians dead, 14 children and nine women were among the fatalities.

The bombing campaign killed more than 500 civilians, including more than 100 children. Airstrikes often appeared to be recklessly indiscriminate, deliberately targeted at least one medical facility and the bombing campaign included the use of indiscriminate weapons such as Israeli-made cluster munitions, shells and incendiary weapons.


Drone imagery shows more than 1000 new distinct impact sites consistent with the detonation of large high explosive bombs across the area during the months.

Turkish soldiers use Israeli-made cluster munitions, shells and incendiary weapons  against the Sunni religious group living in al-Bab.



Using that amount of firepower in populated areas with tens of thousands of civilians predictably killed hundreds of civilians. It was intentionally. Forcing thousands including children to pave the way for redeployment projects. 
The forced displacement which has devastated the lives of ordinary people under the pretext of "terrorism" is a crime of genocide.

One man who attempted to stay in his home in al-Bab told a news agency: “I was in the house with my three children, we didn’t drink water for a week. One day airplanes struck the house. I lost my family, my kids, everything. I wanted to leave but I had nowhere to go.”




Those who ordered and carried out unlawful attacks are war criminals.



The so-called Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR), Human Rights Watch (HRW), Amnesty International remain silent for the moment.
