4:41 am
the. decision it definitely. is good to see our only identifiable by numbers is the message is clear this is the fate that awaits those who dare oppose the regime. today the
4:42 am
syrians are working with international n.g.o.s to try and name the thousands of anonymous victims and to gather all the evidence that will one day serve as proof against the regime and in a court of law. the. scale of syria and these images is truly i mean truly shocking. you know just the sort of the numbers. and the numbers over such a short period of time. you know these photos were not taken all over syria these photos were taken mostly into medical hospitals in damascus. in the capital but in one city into medical facilities run by the military you have at least six thousand five hundred bodies identified over a period of a year and a half two years to military medical center. hospital and hospital

defection of caesar and people around him give us a snapshot into one part of the process which is you know photography by military police and other security agencies for recordkeeping there's another part which is ok what used to happen to these bodies. so this is a satellite imagery. comparing changes in september two thousand and twelve at the national martyr cemetery so we can see for example. that. there were trenches that were dug up new areas so this year you can clearly see for example. there was a new trench that was. dug up by a machine and it was left and over time as you can see between november two
4:46 am
thousand and twelve and for every two thousand and thirteen the first trench was covered and a new trench was was dug up again this is what we can see from the satellite imagery it's not enough for us to say these many bodies were buried and that these are this is the identity of the bodies that were buried it may be a legitimate activity maybe they are burying government soldiers but it may be something else and it could be you know i don't the question i would want to ask the government is what did you do with these bodies very simple question what did you do with these thousands of bodies. god. will come in just as that that i fin which he had to shine had what i mean the more to commune with. the one who couldn't but him in the shuffle with him made him
4:47 am

4:50 am
i think that you would have. no authority. and not the sort of. syria benefits from the unwavering support of a powerful ally russia which has been openly fighting alongside the regime. the crimes of the syrian government are well known by the security council but with its veto russia blocks many resolutions against syria. and. the news that they're not the kind i want to. have but i mean what the job was. for them was there was a time of the. well to surgery.

this strategy of the syrian regime has shown itself to be extremely effective. despite all the kim and it still remains in power in damascus. to survive syrians have no choice but to flee into exile their homeland has been destroyed many of their families and friends have been killed or disappeared the paradise they dreamed. during the early days of the uprising has slowly faded away . for how long will the state's oppression continue how many more people will be arrested and disappear or become victim to
