U.S. State Department Briefing on Syria – Assad’s Newest Crematorium for Prisoner Body Burning…

Earlier today the U.S. State Department held a special briefing to outline concerning discoveries within Syria, including a new crematorium for use in the disposal of bodies.

[Transcript] MS NAUERT: It’s great to see you. Thanks, everyone, for assembling here so quickly today. Welcome to the State Department. We asked you here to provide you with some new information on the six-year crisis in Syria. I’m joined today by Acting Assistant Secretary for the Bureau of Near Eastern Affairs Stuart Jones. Stuart recently returned from the talks in Astana. He’ll give us an update and also provide you with some newly declassified information on Syria today.

Last week, Secretary Tillerson met with Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov for more than an hour here in Washington. You’ve read the readout from that meeting, but I’d like to provide you with some additional context and details coming out of that meeting today.

Secretary Tillerson was firm and clear with Minister Lavrov: Russia holds tremendous influence over Bashar al-Assad. A key point that took place in that bilateral meeting was telling Russia to use its power to rein in the regime. Simply put, the killing and devastation has gone on for far too long in Syria.

Minister Lavrov was clear as well that he shares the same goals as the United States does in Syria: a unified and stable nation. Both men agreed that the way to bring stability to Syria must come through diplomatic and political means.

We call upon Russia to use its influence with the Assad regime to get it to adhere to a lasting negotiated ceasefire. That ceasefire, we believe, will reduce violence and also ensure unhindered humanitarian access and stop the indiscriminate killings of civilians. These actions will help create the conditions on the ground for a political resolution of that conflict.

And with that, I’ll turn it over to Acting Assistant Secretary Stuart Jones. He will take your questions at the end. Thank you.

Sir.

MR JONES: Thank you, Heather. Good morning. Thank you for being here this morning. Since Syria’s civil conflict began in 2011, the Assad regime has treated opposition forces and unarmed civilians as one and the same, committing widespread violations of international law, including the Law of Armed Conflict and Human Rights law. Today, we are releasing newly declassified reporting and photos that underscore the depths to which the Syrian regime has gone with the continuing support of its allies Russia and Iran.

The facts we’re presenting today are based on reporting from international and local nongovernmental organizations, press reporting, and also Intelligence Community assessments. The continued brutality of the Assad regime, including its use of chemical weapons, presents a clear threat to regional stability and security as well as to the national security interests of the United States and our allies.

According to the United Nations and credible human rights organizations, the Syrian civil war has claimed more than 400,000 lives, many of which were civilians. The Assad regime’s actions include well-documented airstrikes and artillery strikes; chemical weapons attacks; arbitrary arrests; extrajudicial killings; starvation; sexual violence; and denial of essential services such as food, water, and medical care to the civilian population.

Since 2012, the regime has routinely conducted airstrikes and artillery strikes in dense urban centers, including with barrel bombs, improvised unguided bombs, which are sometimes described as air-dropped IEDs. The Assad regime systemically targeted eastern Aleppo’s hospitals in multiple strikes, killing patients and medical professionals. (Coughs.) Excuse me.

In addition to airstrikes, the regime continues to systematically abduct and torture civilian detainees, often beating, electrocuting, and raping these victims. A former regime photo-documentarian working under the name Caesar has shared more than 10,000 photos of Assad’s victims with the international community. According to numerous NGOs, the regime has abducted and detained between 65,000 and 117,000 people between 2011 and 2015[1].

Moreover, the regime has also authorized the extrajudicial killings of thousands of detainees using mass hangings at the Saydnaya military prison. Saydnaya is a 45-minute drive outside of Damascus and is one of Syria’s largest and most secure prison complexes. Saydnaya is but one of many detention facilities where prisoners are being held and abused. Others include the Mezzeh airport detention facility and Military Security Branches 215, 227, 235, 248, and 291, which are all located throughout Syria.

The regime holds as many as 70 prisoners in Saydnaya in cells that have a five-person capacity. And according to multiple sources, the regime is responsible for killing as many as 50 detainees per day at Saydnaya. Credible sources have believed that many of the bodies have been disposed in mass graves. We now believe that the Syrian regime has installed a crematorium in the Saydnaya prison complex which could dispose of detainees’ remains with little evidence.

Beginning in 2013, the Syrian regime modified a building within the Saydnaya complex to support what we believe is a crematorium, as shown in the photos that we have distributed to you. 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.

The United States is on record, has stated many times, that we are appalled by the atrocities that have been carried out by the Syrian regime. And these atrocities have been carried out seemingly with the unconditional support from Russia and Iran. Two weeks ago, as Heather said, I attended the Astana conference in Kazakhstan as the U.S. observer. At that meeting – led by Turkey, Russia, and Iran, the guarantors of the Astana process – it was agreed to create de-escalation zones that would reduce violence and save lives.

In light of the failures of the past ceasefire agreements, we have reason to be skeptical. The regime must stop all attacks on civilians and opposition forces, and Russia must bear responsibility to ensure regime compliance. Russia joined the unanimous UN Security Council Resolution 2254, which demands that all parties immediately cease any tacks – any attacks against civilians. Russia has either aided in or passively looked away as the regime has conducted an airstrike against a UN convoy, destroyed east Aleppo, and used chemical weapons, including sarin, against civilians in Idlib province on April 4th.

During his visit here last week, Foreign Minister Lavrov acknowledged that there is no military solution to the Syrian conflict. Russia must now with great urgency exercise its influence over the Syrian regime to guarantee that horrific violations stop now.

So with that, I’ll take your questions. Thank you very much.

MS NAUERT: And I’ll help facilitate that.

QUESTION: Thank you. Two things. One, are you suggesting that Russia and/or Iran have anything to do with this crematorium?

MR JONES: No.

QUESTION: No, okay. And then secondly, do you have any idea how many – you said thousands, mass hangings – how many of the bodies are being disposed of in mass graves or – and how many are being burned?

MR JONES: No. So you’re familiar with the Amnesty International report which projected that as many – between 5- and 11,000 people had been killed in Saydnaya between 2011 and 2015[2].

QUESTION: Right.

MR JONES: So that gives you some idea of what the —

QUESTION: Right.

MR JONES: And then there’s other – other data which suggests as many as 50 murders a day coming out of the complex.

QUESTION: That’s a lot. I mean, that’s a lot. Do you – are all of those – do you think all of the 50 a day are being burned or are —

MR JONES: So I don’t know. But so – but our – what we’re project – what we’re assessing is that if you have that level of production of mass murder, then using the crematorium would help – would allow the regime to manage that number of corpses coming out of the prison complex.

MS NAUERT: Margaret.

MR JONES: And without evidence.

QUESTION: Thank you very much for doing this. Two questions for you. One, do you have any status update on the Americans, Austin Tice or others, who may be held or believed to be held by the regime? And if there’s any connection here, please tell me. And secondly, you talked about the conversations with Lavrov – again the case made that Russia is aiding and abetting here. Did the Secretary walk away with any kind of agreement from his meeting or any kind of achievement to have them say they’re willing to step back? They’ve been telling multiple secretaries of state for some time they’re not wedded to the Assad regime.

MR JONES: So on the issue of the U.S. hostages, no, we don’t see a connection between U.S. hostages and what we’re talking about what’s going on here at Saydnaya prison.

On the issue of the conversation between the Secretary and Foreign Minister Lavrov, there was productive conversations between the Secretary and the foreign minister. They talked about a way forward on Syria. And the president – and sorry, the Secretary acknowledged that the state of the relationship between Russia and the United States is at a low point. Syria is one of the factors where we would like to see the relations improve, but I would not say that they mapped out a specific way forward on how to address the issue of Syrian atrocities or even how to move forward on the Geneva process. Though of course we’re participating in the Geneva process, we support the Geneva process, we believe that in addition to achieving a ceasefire in Syria and cessation of hostilities that the political process needs to follow.

QUESTION: What made it productive, then?

MR JONES: I think —

MS NAUERT: (Inaudible) Nicole.

QUESTION: Hi, thank you for doing this. Have you presented Russia with this visual evidence? Have you asked them to take any actions and/or gotten any response from them?

MR JONES: So we have a – we have not presented this particular – I have not presented this particular evidence to the Russians, but we have an ongoing conversation with the Russians talking about the problem that their failure to condemn Syrian atrocities and their apparent tolerance of Syrian atrocities has created, and we have urged the regime – we have urged the Russian Government to hold the regime responsible for these atrocities.

QUESTION: Sir? Yeah, sir? (Inaudible.)

MS NAUERT: Rich Edson.

QUESTION: Doesn’t this or does this make the case, or is there a consideration of military action to destroy crematorium, some of this apparatus here?

MR JONES: As the President said, we’re not going to signal what we are going to do and what we’re not going to do. At this point we are talking about this evidence and bringing it forward to the international community, which we hope will put pressure on the regime to change its behavior.

QUESTION: Can I just – one very – extremely briefly? What makes you so sure that this is a crematorium and not just some other building? Is it this thing with the snowmelt? Because, I mean, people are going to look at this – the regime in particular or – and the Russians, who you’re – are going to look at this and say: Well, all this proves is that there is a building there and that that part where there’s – snow is melted is simply warmer than the rest of the building. It looks —

MR JONES: So if you look – so obviously, these photos date over several years from 2013 to 2017. If you look at the earliest photo, the August 13 photo, this is during the construction phase, and these HVAC facilities, the discharge stack, the probable firewall, the probable air intake, this is in the construction phase. This would be consistent if they were building a crematorium.

Then we look at the January 15 and we’re looking at snowmelt on the roof that would be consistent with a crematorium. So —

QUESTION: Or just a warmer part of a building, right?

MR JONES: Possibly.

QUESTION: Sir —

MS NAUERT: Dave Clark.

QUESTION: — could I ask you on —

MS NAUERT: Final question.

QUESTION: If Russia refuses to do anything about this, what’s next?

MR JONES: Well, the Russians – Russian Foreign Minister Lavrov and the Russian Government have indicated to us that they are interested in finding a solution on Syria, and there is no solution on Syria without a political process and certainly an end to these atrocities. So we hope that the – we will now be able to work with the Russians in a constructive way to put pressure on the regime to end these atrocities, that the Russian Government will take responsibility for their partner, the Syrian regime, to end these atrocities and —

QUESTION: Can I just follow up briefly on that there? You said this evidence dates back – well, you had been built up over four years, 2013, 2017. Did this intelligence just become concrete recently and is that why you’re releasing it today? Or are you releasing it today with the hope of a political effect?

MR JONES: I would say that this information has been developing, and with the meeting last week between the Foreign Minister Lavrov and the Secretary, this was an opportune time to remind people about the atrocities that are being carried out inside of Syria all the time, of which this is one discrete additive piece of evidence.

QUESTION: Sir, on ending —

MS NAUERT: Thank you, everyone.

QUESTION: — on ending the attacks against the opposition, does that include ISIS and al-Nusrah?

MS NAUERT: Thank you.

They have just completed a tour of Ireland to raise awareness of the situation in their homeland under Israeli military occupation and the plight of the dwindling Christian community there.

              Without the Jew there is no Christian. You write as if there ceased to be a Jewish presence in what became known as Palestine. There has been a continuous Jewish presence in the Holy land since Moses. You seek to cloud the issue by mentioning the Khazarian conversions. I quess people who convert to Judaism have no claim to the Holy land. Seems to me that would exclude King David, whose great grandmother Ruth was a convert or Ger. That should bring into question the Christian belief about Jesus being from the line of David. Before you share the opinions of the so called indigenous Christian, perhaps you should seek the opinions of the indigenous Jew. They NEVER left.

        Rest assured, Assad is more Iran’s boy than Russia’s at this point — at least that appears to be the narrative that is unfolding. Russia may get shivved by their client. We’ll see.

        I think Trump would like for Russia to be the ones doing the anything for the most part (with some back up) — but he may have to push them a lot (you would think that wouldn’t be the case because this unsettles things further east and right in Russia’s underbelly, something Russia can ill afford down the road, but whatever).

    • Are you referring to the reporter who kept asking about the snowmelt on the roof? And I noticed the woman next to him nodding as if to say, “Yes, yes, it looks like that to me, too.” Not a joke. Reporter is trying to ascertain how State “knows” that the building is a crematorium, since the melted area could just be a warm spot under the roof. Legit question, I thought.

        Just for arguments sake…. I see a third or so of a roof where there is no snow, though there is snow elsewhere…. what could have happened? Let’s speculate:: Maybe the roof was buckling a bit on that area, and they decided to remove the excess snow? anyone else can guess? Literally is snow removed from a roof, the only evidence of a crematorium? THIN at best IMHO..

We as a nation are obligated take national responsibility for the military mistakes of the previous administrations and do the best he can to make lemonade out of the rotten lemons.

              That does not mean we send in battalions of troops it means we realign our allies and ignore the Neocon spittle slinging through the air. Trump is not a neocon.

      I’ll add this. The Russians-Syrians have made and upheld 1479 agreements with rebels and terror groups to disarm and stand down. They have not abrogated one. They have not killed one person who gave up the fight.

      The Kurds at the Tabaq Dam near Raqqa guaranteed safe passage for ISIS to leave the area. The US broke the agreement and hunted down with helos, drones and jets the withdrawing ISIS fighters. This is bad protocol. The idea is to get the ISIS fighters to give up the war, save fighters on our side and protect civilians. Now those ISIS fighters we face will fight to the last bomb, IED, bullet and knife at the throat of some poor civilians.

      This is why we have the crematoria stuff. It’s the routine we see when the US hits hospitals and civilians with bombs and missiles. They immediately fabricate a counter story to get the heat off CENTCOM.

          Definitely. But they do such horrific damage to infrastructure and civilians and then in the final stages they mine the areas with thousands of IEDs and use suicide bomb vehicles and men to take out as many troops as they can. so, in Mosul, it has dragged on endlessly and Raqqa could be the same and then Deir ez Zor.

          Using these passage agreements is smart warfare. Even Sun Tzu says to always leave one passage way for the retreat. Save your men.

          It’s not a video game with ISIS and al Nusra. They are very experienced at warfare. Many Chechens have come over the years and they have battle experience and leadership.
          Kurds have taken ungodly casualties against them. And the US and Saudi have equipped them with top artillery and armor, anti-tank TOW missiles. They are formidable at their core. And where they have tunnels and bunkers, it is a tough fight. So out where they have less cover and few civilians, but threaten infrastructure like dams, reservoirs, utilities, the Russians have inserted this tactic. You win the turf back, they go to places they already are in force, and then the precision air strikes decimate them. Idlib is full of AQ and ISIS because they were bussed there to get them out of the big cities. If Turkey would stop backing them in Idlib, the Syrians could wipe them out of that town.

          Today, a report was two ISIS leaders left ISIS to join the FSA, terrorists backed by Erdogan.It’s a crazy war. The last week or two many of the AQ groups have been fighting one another. Like rats fighting over the last pieces of carrion.

          Eventually, the Russians will kill them all. And there are 5000 Ugyhurs in Raqqa region.
          You don’t think Putin and Xi didn’t talk about that group? China does not want them coming back to Xinjiang or moving into Afghanistan or Pakistan. The idea about fighting in Syria is to kill them there. But some battles are best stopped and let them go to other locations, and then kill them there. It’s tactics. Smart.

        This is just the Deep State operating atop the Administration and Cabinet.
        Our policy has not really changed in Syria. 99.5% we are trying to get Assad out.
        Tillerson knows what his presser is about to say, of course.
        The US wants to stop Russia from winning in Syria. Period.
        Vlad can handle everything and the Russians are not at all distracted about NK. They have tried hard to get NK to act reasonably. But the regime knows it must continue with nukes and missiles as leverage against overthrow. The US military may think it can defeat him, but it’s going to have a nuclear war where SK is destroyed also.
        That is why China and Russia want the US to back off and give some diplomacy a chance while tougher sanctions really pressure him. China will cut his oil off and then he’s going to have to adjust his tactics.

        Russia actually has more to lose than China. Their Far East is an oil, gas and LNG complex and also has huge fisheries in the region. So, they actually are big stakeholders in getting things settled down.

        China has petroleum industry in the Harbin region of the NE. But across from South Korea is the naval base and Free Trade Zone in Dalian with massive electronics manufacturing owned by S.Korea and Japan. Look at the map. About 250 miles across the water. Any naval action would impact there badly.

        US has the least stakes in the region. Japan, China and Russia and S. Korea should be dealing with this. US could stand ready, defenses up, watching every move of the psycho, but not agitating him. Bait him into go behavior because he wants to deal 1 to 1 with the US. He knows at some point he has to be a leader not a lunatic. That’s why China and Russia keep saying back off, don’t respond. Tighten the screws on him, but don’t threaten him back for his threats.

        I’ve said the President has about 10% control of the Government. The Presidential powers are in the Deep State, the MIC, the IC and he can’t get a grip on it all. That’s why they keep attacking him. He’s at the mercy of Intel Briefings. Would you trust what comes from the IC? They all say he is cozy with Russia and Putin. They all say his campaign was a Russian covert operation. They threatened his life for months. They setup Flynn and took him down. They frustrated him everywhere. So, they give him another dose tonight. On the eve of his big foreign tour. Where? ME. Where they haven’t won anything in 14 years.
        Where they won’t win in Syria, won’t hold Egypt from Russian alliance, can’t hold Libya who is begging for Russia to come help, and where they screwed up Eridogan coup attempt.

        Always look at the context, not just the Breaking News event.

        If Trump had full power, don’t you think he would have met with Putin?
        That’s not going to happen until July in Hamburg and it will be very marginalized.

        Our natural partner in the war on radical Islam is Russia.

        Every crucial item on Trump agenda is in suspended animation: the Wall, Russia, Infrastructure, Repeal and Replace, Tax Cuts for Business and for Individuals. These are MAGA. He’s accomplished other great things. But these are the critical components of the Trump agenda.

        Like I said, he has 10% of the Presidency. Tillerson has about 25% of State. Pompeo doesn’t care to have 1% of CIA. Same with Coats at DNI. And Mattis and McMaster want glory and more war. They are today’s Westmoreland and Maxwell Taylor who wanted a big war in SE Asia, got it and lost it because the best American generals warned to never fight a war there. We’d never win. (Eisenhower and McArthur).

    How many gullible people will fall for another round of relentlessly fake news regarding Syria. The chemical weapons lie died down so now time for some other fake bs. As others have said, we should expect stories of babies tossed out incubators or maybe even evidence of Assad’s collusion with Bin Laden on the 9/11 attacks.

    Christians will fare better under Assad as opposed to the Saudi/USA/Israeli supported jihadis but that means nothing. “He gassed his own people!!” therefore all things are justified.

    I don’t think Trump is going to do anything else regardless of the existing Neocon pressure in his own State Department.

    Is this story connected to the President Trump leaked secrets during his meeting with Lavrov malarkey.
    Maybe the conversation went something like this;

    Lavrov; “Mr President, vot’s zis I hear, from our highly secret agents vorkink in CNN, about you havink 2 scoopz ov ice-cream for dessert. How can you justify zis?”

    President Trump; “Oh, don’t worry your pretty little head about that Sergei. What’s this we hear, from our source amongst your entourage of underage rent-boys, about you guys building a Hitler style crematorium to help you and Assad get rid of the bodies?

    Lavrov; “But but, zis is outrageous, how could you know about zat!?”

    Tillerson; “What, the crematorium?”

    Lavrov; “No! Ze rent-boys.

    “For ze luv of God, don’t tell Vlad!”

    Like I tried to say above in a post. There is a money trail….(Genie Energy: on the board is Rothschild, Dick Cheney, Rupert Murdoch) near Israel but considered Syria by U.N.? Also, the old War which Turkey is mad at Russia for cutting them out (40% loss of profits) from an oil line (IGP deal, etc.) So, with Obama would have been Shias vs. Sunnis On one side China, Russia, Iran, and Assad(Syria ) vs. Sunnis Muslim brotherhood, USA, Turkey, Qatar, UAE, and Saudi Arabia (madrasas).. I think War would have occurred but he had split loyalties?IMHO ( His sunni side/school he went to in Indonesia, and Shia side Valerie Jarret whispering in his ear) The story (not confirmed) that Hillary flew secretly to talk to Iran when she was injured?…. I say, let these folks fight it out, as we are way less dependent on foreign oil than before… This is a fight for money, folks… The love of money is the root of all evil…….(scrip.) This WAR BETTER be righteous and of God, or our children’s blood will be the sacrifice to the god of MONEY…….

      Also, Syria, I believe is one of the few countries left that does NOT have a bank affiliated with the Rothschilds, as well as North Korea.. Anyone else can confirm?

    Now that PDJT has exposed the FBI Swamp, bringing to light those who would destroy our Constitutional Republic, it’s time for Secy. Pompeo to clean up the CIA, a far bigger task as it’s spread worldwide and operating outside ANY government since its founding.

    After JFK fired Allen Dulles and the underbelly of the organization was exposed during Watergate, many assumed the CIA had been defanged. Wrong. It has only grown into a more complex octopussy, running its own Deep and Deeper State with an endless money supply siphoned off of “Too Big to Fail” deals around oil, arms, drugs, human trafficking, banking, money laundering, and questionable businesses contracted to run government and military operations such as security, traiing, maintenance and Deep State development projects hidden from the public eye. Murder and mayhem are the CIA’s expertise and some local LEOs swear they encourage the growth of gangs in order to make a market for the drugs from foreign markets.

    Joseph J. Trento wrote a summary of these covert activities – a marriage of the Banksters, Wall Street with its global corporations, and Congressional greed — starting with Prescott Bush, but more about the post-Dulles years featuring George H.W., and George W.’s legacies of letting the organization run its own parade of corruption. From Ford to Carter, Reagan to Clinton and beyond, the CIA has continue its rogue operations that leave no doubt as to why much of the world hates us. Hate is not respect. It’s not as if we overthrew dictators to replace them with more kindly leadership; we just replace one dictator with another more willing to bend to our (the CIA’s, thus our government’s) ways and whims. Then we do it again, mostly to retain control of the drugs, oil or other resources-du-jour when the present person in power gets too greedy.

    Given what we know about Benghazi, Turkey, Syria and all nations in the Middle East drama, the CIA network has grown bigger, badder and wealthier under Obama’s reign, but it will take some time before that definitive book comes out as no one, regardless of political party, participating in previous and present riches wants this topic explored.

    Suffice it to say, neither you, nor I, nor the Congress, nor anyone else elected to run our government has the foggiest idea who and what is going on within that agency. Nor does anyone know how many trillions have disappeared from the U.S. system, not including the gold once identified as belonging to Qaddafi and who knows what others brought down by CIA escapades over the years. It’s not only the Banksters and Globalists who are benefitting from the CIA network; former and present employees are thriving from their ad hoc businesses and deal-making.

    For more background, read Trento’s book, “Prelude to Terror: The Rogue CIA and the Legacy of America’s Private Intelligence Network” (2005) which, as of now, I have only been able to find at bookstores via Amazon. Reading the comments section at Amazon is an education unto itself. Try your library, too.

    Then prepare to be quite unsurprised when the $hit hits the fan as Wikileaks proves to be more than true and the Deep State is exposed…one hopes. Our President has taken on an enormous task for which he will not get much support from inside or outside the Beltway…just from We, the People.
