The US Department of State’s Bureau of Democracy Human Rights and Labor (DRL) has issued its annual report on human rights practices documented in nations worldwide for the year 2023. The 113-page section of the DRL report concerning Syria documented multiple types of violations of international law.

The report draws upon various human rights sources. These are ordered by the number of times they were cited as follows:

  1. The Independent International Commission of Inquiry on the Syrian Arab Republic (COI): 85 citations.
  2. The Syrian Network for Human Rights (SNHR): 58 citations.

In addition to these, the DRL report cites a number of other sources including, inter alia, the Office of the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR), the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA), the Office of the UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC), Human Rights Watch (HRW), and Amnesty International, as well as local organizations, in addition to utilizing the expertise and the findings of investigations conducted by the team members of the DRL itself.

It should be noted that, with this year’s report, the DRL has now used SNHR as a primary source in its reports for 12 consecutive years. The DRL’s Human Rights Practices Reports are official and foundational documents that accurately describe the state of human rights in Syria, and serve as principal reference resources for different US government bodies, as well as for many congressmen, congresswomen and other US decision-makers.
