There is no limit to the horror in Syria. During a briefing to journalists, Stuart Jones, the US assistant secretary of state for Near Eastern affairs, revealed that Assad’s regime had set up incinerators to burn prisoners’ bodies.

The crematorium, he says, was established in Sednaya prison, north of Damascus, where political prisoners are held.

According to the American administration, thousands of prisoners have already been executed there. Jones said that the Assad regime kills up to 50 prisoners each week, and that after the bodies were burned, they were buried in a common grave there.

“Credible sources have believed that many of the bodies have been disposed in mass graves,” Jones told reporters. “We now believe that the Syrian regime has installed a crematorium in the Sednaya prison complex which could dispose of detainees’ remains with little evidence.”

The United States is appalled by the atrocities committed by the Assad regime, with unconditional support from Russia and Iran,” he added.
