BEIJING, Nov. 3 (Xinhuanet) -- The US State Department says it "condemns human rights violations by any party in Syria."
Victoria Nuland, Spokeswoman, US State Department, said, "We condemn human rights violations by any party in Syria. There is no justification for that kind of behaviour ever. Anyone committing atrocities should be held to account. I would note that the Free Syrian Army themselves back in August put forward a code of conduct which reflects rules of war, international codes and they have routinely called on their fighters to adhere to that, and we would echo that sentiment here."
