Syrian Government Denies US Accusations of Cremating Bodies of Prisoners

CAIRO – The Syrian government denied on Tuesday accusations made by the United States over the alleged existence of a crematorium to dispose of the bodies of prisoners killed in a Syrian prison, north of Damascus.

A senior source at the Syrian foreign ministry said that the accusations by the US administration against the Syrian government over what it called a crematorium in Sednaya prison, and the use of explosive barrels and chemical weapons, are completely unfounded.

Additionally, US assistant secretary of state for Near Eastern affairs, Stuart Jones, pointed out that photographic evidence is available showing that the Syrian authorities built a crematorium near Sednaya, where the bodies of prisoners were burned to conceal mass executions.

Speaking to the official SANA news agency, the Syrian ministerial source claimed that the current US administration was interfering in Syrian affairs by coming up with a new “Hollywood story” far from reality and without relevant research.

He said that the Syrian government was not surprised by those statements usually made before the launch of any new political round, whether in Geneva or Astana.

A new round of peace negotiations for Syria, with the participation of the Syrian government and opposition delegations, began on Tuesday in Geneva, with the mediation of the United Nations special envoy to the Arab country, Staffan de Mistura.
