    (ANSAmed) - GENEVA, SEPTEMBER 24 - Italy remains deeply concerned by the great number of extrajudicial executions and people who have been reported missing or who are illegally detained, as well as torture and gender violence perpetrated in detention centers, said Italy's deputy permanent representative to the United Nations, Marie Sol Fulci, intervening during an interactive dialogue with the Commission of inquiry on Syria, chaired by Paulo Sergio Pinheiro, during the 48th Session of the Human Rights Council.

    Fuci recalled how Syrians are continuing to endure grave and systematic violations of human rights and condemned attacks against civilians and civilian infrastructures, conducted in open violation of international humanitarian law. The deputy permanent representative then urged all actors on the ground to reveal what happened to those who have disappeared or who are still missing, urging them to work significantly with international mechanisms with jurisdiction on the matter. Fulci - according to a statement released by the representation - also condemned violence and atrocities committed by all sides in conflict, stressing the importance of determining the responsibilities of those who committed serious human rights violations. Finally, she expressed Italy's full support for the Commission of Inquiry and the International, Impartial and Independent Mechanism on Syria and stressed how fighting impunity is a requirement for the peaceful solution of the conflict in the country.
