Turkey - SMART

On Friday, the Amnesty International called for protecting the entire region outside Syrian government control in Northern Syria, not just for the demilitarized zone.

The new Secretary-General of Amnesty International, Kumi Naidu, warned that millions of civilians would be endangered if the military parties don't comply with the Russian-Turkish agreement. Naidu considered that civilians would not have long protection, as the Syrian President, Bashar al-Assad, stated that the agreement is a temporary procedure.

Naidu said that the Russian forces and the Syrian government targeted hospitals, medical facilities, schools, and infrastructure. They also deprived civilians of their homes and fundamental rights. He called on Russia, Iran, and Turkey to prevent a humanitarian disaster in the governorate of Idlib, Northern Syria.

Naidu added that they would monitor the demilitarized zone and document violations of international humanitarian law committed by all sides against civilians living inside and outside the region. The civilians in Syria have used to "failed promises" by the Syrian government and Russia.

Naidu stressed that the international community should not ignore the issue of protecting civilians in Syria. He added, "Our fears for the civilian population of Idlib are based on the Syrian government’s record of complete disregard for fundamental principles of humanity.."

Naidu stressed that all parties, including the Syrian government and the US-led coalition, must provide victims and their families with full reparation. He noted the Syrian government continues to commit its war crimes, such as "attacking civilians, forcing displacement of thousands of people, and blocking humanitarian agencies from providing life-saving aid."

The Amnesty International issued this report after Turkey and Russia reached an agreement on Sept. 17 to establish a demilitarized zone in the governorate of Idlib. The Turkish Defense Ministry announced that the Free Syrian Army (FSA) and Islamic Battalions finished withdrawing heavy weapons from the region. The Russian Foreign Ministry said that the withdrawal deadline might be delayed by one or two days. The FSA described this delay as "to justify the regime's non-compliance."
