United Nations: “What we are seeing in eastern Ghouta and elsewhere in Syria are likely war crimes and potentially crimes against humanity,” Jordanian Prince and UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Zeid Raad Zeid al-Hussein said during the Human Rights Council’s 37th regular session in Geneva on Friday.

Speaking of raging war between the Syrian government forces and militants, the High commissioner raised serious concerns over how, “Civilians are being pounded into submission or death.”

According to Prince Zeid, the perpetrators would be held accountable for their crimes and that “Syria must be referred to the International Criminal Court.”
