Sondakika-haberleri.Net U.N.-backed investigators have said that possible war crimes, including hostage-taking, torture and rape, may have been committed by the so-called Syrian National Army, a coalition of Turkey-backed rebel groups in Syria. The investigators have called on Turkey to do more to prevent these abuses and ensure the protection of civilians in the areas under its control.
Turkey must rein in Syrian rebels it supports in northern Syria who may have carried out kidnappings, torture and looting of civilian property, United Nations war crimes investigators said on Sept. 15.
The panel also said transfers of Syrian nationals detained by the opposition Syrian National Army to Turkish territory for prosecution may amount to the war crime of unlawful deportation.
