Russia Says It Found Mass Graves with Dozens of Mutilated Bodies in Aleppo

MOSCOW – Russia said on Monday that it had found mass graves with dozens of mutilated bodies, some shot in the head, in the northern Syrian city of Aleppo, which it said had been liberated last week by the Syrian army.

Speaking to reporters, Russian military spokesman Igor Konashenkov said some in the mass graves had suffered what he described as savage torture and reprisals, the result of serious war crimes.

“Big burial sites of dozens of Syrians who had been tortured and massacred have been found,” Konashenkov said. “Many of them lack body parts, most were shot in the head,” he added.

Konashenkov said that crimes committed in Aleppo were being carefully documented and would be made public.

He said one difficulty being encountered after the liberation was that many mines had been planted in streets, entrances to houses, cars and even in children’s toys.

“They had both time and munitions for that,” Konashenkov said.

He said that the grim discoveries made so far in Aleppo were just the beginning.
