I’m betting nary a word on Syria at General Assembly this week. Not our concern so to speak.
Furthermore, over the course of the Syrian crisis there has also been horrendous reports of gender based violence.
Last week the organisation Human Rights Watch reported that Syrian government forces have been using sexual violence to facilitate torture of both men and women detainees. In addition, the organisation has also heard testimonies from civilians who have also suffered violence of a sexual nature in their own homes.
