Turkey - SMART

On Friday, activists from Eastern Ghouta, Damascus, accused the Syrian government forces of trying to obliterate the remnants of the chemical massacres in their cities and towns.

Based on information from the people of Eastern Ghouta, activists told SMART that last April, the Syrian government transferred the bodies of the victims of the chemical massacre in the city of Douma from the park to an unknown place.

Activists, human rights organizations and Western countries accused the Syrian government of using internationally banned chemical weapons on several occasions in the past seven years; most recently in the city of Douma in Rif Dimashq last April, where more than forty civilians were killed.

The activists stated that two days ago, the Syrian government forces besieged the cemetery of Zamalka city and exhumed the graves of the victims of the massacre on Aug. 21, 2013, and took them to an unknown place.

On Aug. 21, 2013, chemical and toxic gas attacks on Eastern Ghouta killed and suffocated hundreds of civilians. Local coordination committees in Syria reported that 1,360 civilians, including dozens of children and women, were killed in the massacre. The medical office in the city of Douma stated that symptoms of the attacks indicate that the attacks were carried out using sarin gas.

Another activist told SMART that the Syrian government forces exhumed the graves in Eastern Ghouta, including the cemetery of Irbin. The government forces took the cemetery guard several times to the Palestine security branch to investigate him. The activist explained that one of the reasons for exhumation the graves was to search for weapons.

Displaced activists from Eastern Ghouta to Northern Syria stated that the Syrian government calls on mayors, such as Harasta and Irbin, to guide it to the burial places of the victims of the chemical massacres. The Syrian government tell the people that it transferred the bodies to Najha cemetery.

In April, the Syrian government announced seizing the entire Eastern Ghouta after the last group of forcibly displaced people left the city of Douma.
