“Syrian opposition leaders need to secure Anhar Kochneva’s safe
release immediately. Hostage-taking during armed conflict is a war
crime,” said Ann Harrison, Deputy Director of Amnesty International’s
Middle East and North Africa Program.

Amnesty International is calling on the opposition coalition to act
now to ensure that its allied armed groups adhere strictly to their
obligations under international humanitarian law and commit to upholding
human rights standards.

The organization’s statement says that the call came as the Friends
of Syria group recognized the National Coalition of Syrian Revolutionary
and Opposition Forces as the Syrian people’s legitimate representative,
amid escalating use of heavy weaponry by the Syrian government.
