Physicians For Human Rights Calls For ‘Strict Accountability’ For Continued Violations Of International Law In Conflict Zones

Physicians for Human Rights: Yemen and Syria Rules of Combat: Is Blatant Disregard for Humanitarian Norms the New Normal?
Marianne Møllmann, director of research and investigations at PHR, discusses violations of international humanitarian law in Syria and Yemen, writing, “International humanitarian norms have been flouted through the bombing and shelling of health care facilities, blocking of humanitarian aid, besiegement, and the use of chemical weapons against civilians. … [U]nless we insist on strict accountability for continued violations of the law … future conflicts will be characterized by even more flagrant disregard of norms” (3/26).
