Ravina Shamdasani quotes
All parties in Aleppo are conducting hostilities that are resulting in large numbers of civilian casualties and creating an atmosphere of terror for those who continue to live in the city.
The use of human shields is prohibited under international humanitarian law and constitutes a violation of the right not to be arbitrarily deprived of life.
Fighters are allegedly killing civilians who refuse to comply. Forced out by gunpoint, or killed if they resist, these people are reportedly being moved to strategic locations.
Many of them who refused to comply were shot on the spot.
ISIL's depraved cowardly strategy is to attempt to use the presence of civilian hostages to render certain points, areas or military forces immune from military operations, effectively using tens of thousands of women, men and children as human shields. Many of those who refused to comply were shot on the spot.
Many of those who refused to comply were shot on the spot, and even among those who did comply, many of them – including 190 former ISF officers and 42 other civilians – were shot dead.
