The international arrest warrants are  a path to accountability wanted by the Syrian Opposition .There will be no justice for Syrians without it.

The Syrian Network for Human Rights publishes regularly updates on war crimes and crimes against humanity  by the Assad Regime, and stresses on the necessity of this accountability. It calls international leaders to judge the responsible for crimes against humanity at the ICC, according to International Conventions: Report_on_the_Most_Notable_Cases_of_Arbitrary_Arrest_en 

In this report, the Syrian Network for Human Rights calls for a judgement by the international community of all the responsible for crimes against humanity.

French arrest warrants are only a beginning.

I hope it will be followed by others: Assad himself cannot escape the justice.
