1.       The killing of the prisoners in the “Central Prison of Hama” on Sunday 7/31/2011.  Their number is 72 prisoners of the peaceful demonstrators and political activists.  They have been buried in mass graves near the village of al-Khalidyah beside the “Military Security” branch in Hama. 
2.       The mass graves in the public parks made by the security forces and the death squads (al-Shabyha).  The number of their victims numbers up to 420 or more.  I was asked to present a report declaring that these victim were killed by the hand of “Armed Gangs.”
3.       Random arrests of the peaceful demonstrators.  Their number reaches around 10,000 persons.  
4.       The torture in the security branches.  Their victims amount to 320 citizens.  I was forced to give order to bury 17 of the torture victims.  They have been transported from the refrigerators to the “al-Khadraa” Cemetery in al-Srayhin. 
5.       The Syrian Army has destroy homes with their residents in them in the neighborhood of  al-Hamediyah and al-Qusur.  Bodies were left under the ruins for several days until they started to decompose.
