“Islamist rebels and jihadists in Syria are guilty of war crimes, Amnesty International said in a report on Tuesday, accusing them of “a chilling wave of abductions, torture and summary killings”.

“The London-based rights group named five Syrian anti-regime factions operating in northern Syria: Al-Qaeda affiliate Al-Nusra Front, hardliner Ahrar al-Sham, Nureddin Zinki, the Levant Front and Division 16.”   

“The groups have detained and tortured lawyers, journalists,and children” the report said..some of the accused groups “are believed to have the support of governments such as Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Turkey and the US”.

“Syria’s conflict began in March 2011 with anti-government protests but has since broken down into all-out war, leaving more than 280,000 people dead…Amnesty called on world powers to “pressure armed groups to end such abuses and comply with the laws of war”.
The report said regional powers must also stop providing weapons or other forms of support to any factions involved in war crimes or other violations.”
