US names Syrian commanders responsible for killing and torture of civilians

 The US Ambassador to the United Nations in New York Samantha Power named 13 Syrian military commanders that had been involved in killing and injuring civilians since 2011 through air and ground assaults, and detaining and torturing civilians reports Reuters.
“The United States will not let those who have commanded units involved in these actions hide anonymously behind the façade of the Assad regime, said MS Power.
The US Ambassador added,
“Those behind such attacks must know that we and the international community are watching their actions, documenting their abuses, and one day they will be held accountable.”
The statement was made during  monthly briefing where the UN Aid Chief, Stephon O’Brien said, over 850,000 people were besieged by government forces in Syria.
