Zaman al-Wasl has obtained a new package of mass torture photos for Syrian children, showed systematic killing and maimings by Bashar al-Assad's security services.
The atrocious photos of mass torture had been taken between 2011 and mid 2013 in the well-known 601 military hospital in Mezzah neighborhood of Damascus.
Children in Syria have been tortured, maimed and sexually abused by al-Assad's forces and recruited for combat by the rebels fighting to topple him during the country's conflict of almost three years, UN report said in 2014.
The Syrian conflict has hit the country's children hard. The UN said government forces had been responsible for the arrest, arbitrary detention, ill treatment and torture of children. Children as young as 11 have been detained by the authorities on suspicion of having links with armed groups, the Guardian reported.
In mid 2013, 55,000 photos smuggled out of Syria by a former Syrian military police photographer gave a glimpse of some of the abuses being committed in Syrian jails.
The digital images of 11,000 dead detainees showed emaciated bodies and the defector, identified only as Ceasar, described seeing corpses with "deep wounds and burns and strangulations.
Children in government custody have reportedly been beaten with metal cables, whips and wooden and metal batons, and suffered electric shock, mock executions, cigarette burns, sleep deprivation and solitary confinement, and sexual violence, including rape and threats of rape, the report says.
During the first two years of the conflict most killings and maimings of children were attributed to government forces, the UN report says.
The Syrian Network for Human Rights, in report issued last September, said at least 215,000 people were arrested by Syrian security since the revolution erupted in March 2011. (4,500 of them are women and 9,000 are less than 18).
According to the report, 2630 detainees were tortured to death, and 70,000 cases documented as enforced disappearance.
More than 220,000 people have been killed in Syria since the revolt against Bashar al-Assad began in March 2011, the United Nations says.
Photos are published in cooperation with the Syrian Association for the Missing and Prisoners of Conscience.
Zaman al-Wasl deliberately insists to show victims' faces, so their families and relatives can recognize them.
