Syria Executes 24
By Micah Halpern

Sunday October 24, 2021
I've Been Thinking:

Syria regularly executes people convicted of crimes.

Recently, Syria executed 24 people. They were convicted of igniting wildfires last year that left three people dead and burnt thousands of hectares (acres) of forests. The fire was devasting.

Executions are common in Syria.

But 24 executions is an unusually large number even for Syria to execute at one time.

Syria's decade-old conflict left hundreds of thousands dead and displaced half the country's population, including five million refugees outside the country.

The Syrian Ministry of Justice said those were executed, "criminals who carried out terrorist attacks that led to deaths and damage to infrastructure and public property." The ministry said that there were another 11 people who were sentenced to life in prison in the same case.
