With the escalation of airstrikes carried out by the regime and Russian air forces on different areas in Syria without distinguishing between the civilian and military targets, SOHR holds the international community the moral responsibility towards the daily killing committed against the Syrian people, and demands the International Security Council to work seriously to stop the daily killing and displacing the Syrians and to help them to reach to the state of democracy, justice, freedom and equality that ensure all rights for all component of the Syrian people without discrimination. It also re-call the UN Security Council to issue a binding resolution to stop the military operations in Syria and to refer the file of war crimes and crimes against humanity to the International Criminal Court.
