At Least 28,500 Females Have Been Killed and at Least 10,500 Females Are Still Detained or Forcibly Disappeared.
The worst aspect of the Syrian women’s suffering has been the failure of the international community to protect them, to stop the killings, torture and detention. The flagrant violations against women and girls in Syria call for both the United Nations member states and the Security Council to implement prevention and protection measures to shield women from the consequences of the conflict.
It is essential that these bodies assume their responsibilities towards Syria’s women and put an end to the impunity enjoyed by the perpetrators of multiple crimes and force them to abide by the rules of international law, which clearly provide for giving women particular protection and care. In Syria’s case, however, these rules have been completely disregarded amid the relentless, flagrant violence and brutality of the Syrian regime.
