targeted the hospital However the organisation Doctors Without Borders known by its French acronym MSF said that the strikes were “probably” by Syrian or Russian forces who are active in the area The facilities that were bombed on an average provided 23000 consultations 1045 surgeries and 550 deliveries per month and were the lifelines for health care of acutely vulnerable communities In 2015 63 MSF-supported health facilities that treated 154000 wounded were bombed in 94 instances of targeting by aerial attacks and shelling resulting in 84 casualties among health workers In 2016 between 17 and 20 civilian infrastructures have already been bombed in Syria — of these women and children represented 30 and 40 percent of the victims of this violence International organisations like World Health Organisation (WHO) United Nations Children’s Emergency Fund (UNICEF) International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) and MSF routinely provide GPS coordinates of important civilian infrastructures like schools and hospitals to warring parties so the areas could be avoided However in Syria Afghanistan and Yemen the same GPS coordinates have been ironically used to target these civilian objects There is an ongoing active debate within the MSF whether to provide these GPS coordinates to the warring parties concerned The MSF had given the coordinates for three hospitals in Syria to the Russian ambassadors in Geneva and Paris but not of the al-Numan hospital that was targeted “Everybody knew —those are not clandestine or underground hospitals” Defourny said arguing that all intelligence agencies knew of the hospital even though MSF had not given the Syrian or the Russian governments its coordinates “In five years 58 Syrian Red Crescent volunteers have been killed while carrying out humanitarian work” Sitara Jabeen Middle East spokesperson for ICRC told FirstPost MSF and ICRC workers in these areas are usually local volunteers and are often the last bastions of hope in such stressed-out circumstances Liu elaborating on the condition of these volunteers said “My staff just said ‘you know what Joanne we have been in Syria for the last five years living under the bomb we are the toughest because we stayed there We believed we could pull through We believe a solution will come…You know what Today the only thing we want to do is flee’” The Syrian airspace is divided into bombing hot spots for coalitions active in air strikes including by governments of Syria Russia Turkey Saudi Arabia the US the UK Jordan Qatar Australia UAE and France depending on whose interests lie where “Unfortunately there are too many cooks that are mixing in The role played by Saudi Arabia by Turkey is particularly damaging And it complicates the solution significantly” Dr Alfred de Zayas UN special rapporteur for democratic and equitable international order and a leading expert on human rights and international law told FirstPost “Increases in the data recording death and injury from the MSF-supported clinics correlate with major military offensives and Russian French and British air forces joining the bombing campaigns over Syria” states the MSF findings “We are going to lead a war which will be pitiless” the French government had declared after the Paris bombing Apart from the Russian and Syrian governments stepping up airstrikes since October 2015 and the French airstrikes the US continues it bombings on Islamic Stateterritories while Turkey is trying to push back the Kurdish army which in turn is fighting the Islamic State In Deir ez-Zor the IS has reportedly executed 300 people in a single day according to local media to counter airstrikes by the US and Russia Raqqa the self-declared capital of IS has also come under frequent airstrikes by the US-led coalition the Syrian air force and Russian warplanes killing civilians as war collateral The west Asian nation has recorded the deaths of at least 250000 people in the last six years and another 11 million fleeing the killings by the government forces rebel fighters and IS Apart from direct air strikes on civilian spaces deliberate starving of civilians — a serious breach of international humanitarian law — has emerged as an efficient war strategy in these countries ravaged by war At least 20 towns have been besieged by the government forces and opposition groups that have encircled populated areas preventing civilians from leaving and blocking humanitarian access thus forcing residents to survive on grass for more than six months Up to 45 million people in Syria live in such hard-to-reach areas including 400000 people in towns besieged by the parties to the conflict in locations such as in Deir ez -Zor Madaya Foah Kafraya as well as besieged areas of East Ghouta Humanitarian aid like medical supplies and food is crucial not least because 88 percent of households in southern Syria are living in extreme poverty compared to pre-crisis levels of only 5 percent according to a new report from aid agencies CARE Norwegian Refugee Council and FAO In 2015 however only 10 percent of requests to the government and rebel groups for UN inter-agency convoys to reach besieged and hard-to-reach areas had been approved Aid workers have described horrific scenes of starvation and dying people in such besieged locations Such scenes should not be seen in the 21st century said Yacoub El Hillo UN humanitarian coordinator in Syria who entered Madaya with a UN aid convoy after a long spell of besiegement International humanitarian law prohibits using starvation as a tactic of war “That [intentional starving] is a war crime [and] depending on the magnitude it can be a crime against humanity” Dr Zayas said Pinheiro had told this reporter earlier this month that the CoI is putting together the names of all the parties that have been involved in cutting off humanitarian access to civilians and will present this list as part of a report to the UN Human Rights Council in its 31st session that begins end of this month There is no safe sanctuary in Syria anymore Civilians are trying to escape aerial bombing and ground fighting only to find closed borders About 100000 people are stranded in northern Syria between the frontlines and the Turkish border while a similar event is unfolding in the southern areas with a closed Jordanian border There are others in besieged areas who cannot even attempt escaping the random and devastating aerial bombings “Millions have run others cannot They are caged inside closed borders Today Syria is a kill box” Liu said Situation in Yemen Yemen another active conflict zone faces a similar egregious fate as Syria with similar breaches of the IHL by governments and rebel groups of the Houthis Air strikes by the Saudi-led coalition which includes the UAE Qatar Egypt Jordan Kuwait and supported by the US have killed at least 6000 people and ambushed more than 600 health facilities and 1170 schools since the conflict began in March 2015 A man runs away from a petrol station after it was hit by an airstrike in Yemen’s Red Sea port city of Houdieda on 5 February Reuters A leaked UN report by the BBC in Januaryrevealed that the Saudi-led coalition is targeting civilians with airstrikes in a “widespread and systematic” manner The UN panel of experts has also opined that civilians have been deliberately starved over the last nine months as a war strategy The experts have recorded 119 coalition sorties that have violated IHL including by multiple strikes on civilian objects Human Rights Watch (HRW) has said that cluster munitions sold to Saudi Arabia by the US were used in attacks on residential neighborhoods in Yemen’s capital of Sanaa and has called for an international inquiry into the alleged war crime “You have Saudi Arabia massacring the Yemenis It is amazing how little attention is devoted to the targeting of hospitals and civilians in Yemen” de Zayas told FirstPost Not a single humanitarian pause has been respected by any of the Yemeni warring parties or by the coalition “IHL requires that you take special measures to prevent hitting hospitals… there is an obligation to assure yourself and to take special measures to limit any collateral damage and there’s where you might say that not that they deliberately tried to destroy the hospitals but that they did not take the necessary measures to prevent that That’s where the war crime lies” de Zayas said The UN humanitarian chief Stephen O’Brien in a briefing to the UN Security Council on 16 February warned of a “humanitarian catastrophe” in Yemen with 76 million people “severely food insecure” and more than 35 million children out of school Yemen was already one of the poorest countries in the world located in a rich neighborhood even before the civil war began in 2015 The same pattern of besiegement of cities is seen in Yemen as in Syria The Houthi rebels and their allies stated O’Brien in his briefing are inconsistent in allowing access to areas they control with UN missions for delivering aid denied permission to enter Ibb Taiz and Saada In the northern governorates where the needs are the severest and where Al Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula is present violent coalition strikes have made aid movement “extremely challenging and dangerous” “Getting aid to besieged areas is one of the hardest challenges for aid workers It takes an enormous effort to obtain the consent of all the parties” Jabeen told FirstPost Saudi Arabia has already blocked humanitarian supplies from reaching Yemen several times since the beginning of the conflict The Associated Press (AP) obtained a Saudi note on 5 February that advised international organisations and aid agencies “to move any offices and staff they may have in regions where the Houthi militia and their supporters are active and in areas where there are military operations” Philippe Bolopion deputy director for global advocacy at HRW told AP that the Saudi warning “given the coalition’s track record of violations of the laws of war” could be constructed as a threat to humanitarian workers in Houthi areas In the quest for peace accountability and justice often take a beating in such conflicts Accountability becomes even more far-fetched when the parties implicatedare legitimate and powerful governments MSF has appealed to the International Humanitarian Fact-Finding Commission (IHFFC) — an independent body established in 1977 as a First Additional Protocol to the Geneva Conventions — in October 2015to investigate the bombing of a MSF-supported hospital in Kunduz in Afghanistan by US airstrikes inspite of the fact that the US military commanders had the GPS coordinates of the hospital It was one of the worst civilian casualties in the country’s 14-year old war MSF has made a similar appeal to investigate war crimes in Yemen The IHFFC has also announced that it stands ready to investigate the bombings of schools and hospitals in Syria on 15 February However the IHFFC can jump into action only after procuring the consent of the concerned warring States — this makes the mechanism self-defeating “We haven’t succeeded in getting the consent of the two countries [Afghanistan and the US] being involved So this is where we are right now for the time being” Liu said of the status of their appeal to IHFFC “That would be first would be clear that [it] would be a nation [the US] that would reaffirm the protection of what we call the medical mission in war zones which is anchored in the Geneva convention which is a sub set of it For me that would be leading by example And this is something that we shared over and over again with the US administration I have done it on so many occasions last few months” Liu said of her attempts to convince the US for an IHFFC investigation Houthi militants stand on the back of a military truck with the coffin of judge Yahya Rubaid who was killed along with his family in an airstrike in Yemen’s capital Sanaa on 26 January Reuters The International Criminal Court (ICC or Court) that investigates crimes of genocide crimes against humanity and war crimes also can do scant little at the moment Syria and Iraq are not parties to the Rome Statute the founding treaty of the Court The prosecutor of the ICC Fatou Bensouda issued a statement in March 2015: “A renewed commitment and a sense of urgency on the part of the concerned states may help identify viable avenues The decision of non-Party States and the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) to confer jurisdiction on the ICC is however wholly independent of the Court” “The prosecutor of the ICC does not have the capacity The only body — we have told five times to the 15 members of the Security Council — [is]the Security Council The Security Council has the key for this accountability and that is the message we are saying to the General Assembly this afternoon” Pinheiro told reporters in New York on 22 February Though the CoI as well as many members of the UN General Assembly have repeatedly asked for a UNSC referral of Syria to the ICC the fact that most permanent members of the UNSC are themselves implicated in the conflicts has complicated matters considerably in terms of accountability and justice “Four of the five permanent members of the UNSC are involved in military operations in Syria They are failing to abide by their own resolutions for protecting civilians health care and provision of humanitarian assistance” Liu said The UNSC has passed many important resolutions on Syria the most recent one being resolution 2258 which asks for unimpeded flow of humanitarian aid to Syria but the weakness of such resolutions lies in their implementation “But the degree of implementation [of the UNSC resolutions] to use an understatement is very limited” Pinheiro said The CoI has already prepared a list of names of potential war criminals from interviews with about 5000 victims and also has evidence of war crimes as well as crimes against humanity perpetrated by governments but doesn’t have a formal platform to share this valuable information “[We are] ready to share with the Security Council if Security Council formally asks us to share those things” Pinheiro said The CoI in its report has also asked for an ad hoc tribunal in addition to a ICC referral or in case the ICC referral continues to beblocked by the UNSC permanent members “If that doesn’t work [referral to ICC and/or an ad hoc tribunal] and to date that has not proceeded then there are other entry points — the Commission is cooperating with some countries bilaterally in terms of sharing some information so as to facilitate national prosecution on the basis of fair trial guarantees” Vitit Muntarbhorn one of the Commissioners in the CoI for Syria said “We are cautiously optimistic” Pinheiro said of the Syrian peace process and for securing justice for the millions of civilians whose lives have been shattered Earlier this month Saudi Arabia Turkey and the UAE threatened to deploy ground troops in Syria Russia in turn has warned that if foreign troops enter Syria then the battlefield could turn to a world war However what we see today is a world already at war: where violent conflicts are fought with scant regard for any established rules of the
