unstar this property answer text <p>We are deeply concerned by reports of the extrajudicial killing of Hevrin Khalaf, the Secretary General of the Future Syria Party, on 12 October. The UK strongly supports efforts to pursue accountability in Syria. It is the policy of the British Government, that any judgment as to whether war crimes, crimes against humanity or genocide have occurred is a matter for judicial decision after consideration of all the available evidence, rather than for governments or non-judicial bodies. To this end, we are providing diplomatic and financial support to the UN Impartial Independent Investigative Mechanism to gather evidence and prepare legal cases</p><p>We expect all sides to respect their obligations towards civilians under the international humanitarian law.</p> more like this

We are in regular contact with the US regarding the rapidly developing situation. The Prime Minister spoke to President Trump last week, and the Foreign and Defence Secretaries have also spoken with their US counterparts. We are united in calling on Turkey to end the operation, and on all parties to abide by their obligations under international humanitarian law.

unstar this property answer text <p>​We follow closely the human rights situation in Syria, including north-east Syria. We are concerned at reported violations of international humanitarian law in the context of the Turkish military intervention and have called on all parties to respect their obligations under international humanitarian law. As a party to the Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide, we will continue to work closely with international partners in pursuit of justice for the victims of Daesh in Syria and Iraq. The British Government supports the UN mechanisms to monitor and gather evidence of any war crimes, genocide and crimes against humanity committed in Syria, namely the UN Commission of Inquiry for Syria and the International, Impartial and Independent Mechanism for Syria.</p> more like this
