Anniversary of the chemical attack on Eastern Ghouta

21 August 2013

On August 21, 2013, Eastern Ghouta in Damascus countryside woke up to a massacre perpetrated by the use of chemical weapons that killed hundreds of civilians. Circumstantial Evidence indicated that the Syrian regime is responsible for this attack.
The attack took place three days after the arrival of a mission of international observers to Damascus. Officials from the United States, Britain, France, Turkey, Canada, Sweden and others announced that the “Syrian regime government” was responsible for the attack. Human Rights Watch also announced that it has strong evidence indicating that the attack was “carried out by the regime’s government forces,” which prevented UN investigators from inspecting the site of the attacks.
The use of chemical weapons is a barbaric crime and a crime against humanity. There will be no compromise regarding bringing those responsible for the crime to justice.

The draft constitution shall guarantee the full compliance with International Humanitarian Law, the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the International Covenant on Civil and political rights, the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights and the Convention on the Prohibition of the Development, Production, Stockpiling and Use of Chemical Weapons. It shall also support international efforts to promote the Non-Proliferation of weapons of mass destruction.
