GENEVA (Reuters) - U.N. rights investigators have established that Syrian government forces were almost certainly responsible for two massacres last May in which up to 450 civilians were killed, a report published on Wednesday said. The report documents nine mass killings in all, attributing all but one to government forces, but said both government and rebel fighters had committed war crimes including murder, hostage-taking and shelling of civilians.
Honestly, I saw few Assad's interviews and he always admitted that he used force to fight against rebels.
Now, I don't want to defend Assad in any way, but these reports makes me wonder about their goal since in a civil war it's normal that episodes like these happen.
