>> The U.S. State Department on Monday, claiming the ruling regime in Syria has built a massive crematorium to burn the bodies of prisoners being executed daily by the dozens, at the Sednaya Military Prison, outside Damascus. Acting Assistant Secretary of State, Stuart Jones.>> Beginning in 2013, the Syrian regime modified a building within the Sydnai complex to support what we believe is a crematorium.
Although the regime's many atrocities are well documented, we believe that the building of a crematorium is an effort to cover up the extent of mass murders Taking place in Saydnaya Prison.>> Earlier this year, Amnesty International reported 20 to 50 people were being hanged at Saydnaya every day, and that as many as 13 thousand people have been killed since the Civil War began.
Jones not saying whether the US or its allies plan to take any action.
e announcement comes weeks after President Trump bombed a Syrian airfield after pinning the blame for a deadly chemical weapons attack on Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.>>
