What do we know about the history of the ‘Abbas farm’ in Lebanon?
The Abbass farm, where Lebanese President Michel Aoun was born, was built in the early 20th century and was one of the most important sites of the Lebanese Civil War.
The Abassas were killed during the fighting and were buried in a mass grave in the desert north of Beirut.
Since then, they have been a popular tourist attraction.
But over the past several years, the Abbass have faced mounting international criticism over the country’s treatment of their relatives, including alleged abuse.
The Syrian regime has denied that the Abasss were tortured.
In October, Lebanese Prime Minister Saad Hariri was quoted by Al Jazeera as saying that “in Syria, where the Abasses are, they are not treated humanely.”
The Abasses say they have received threats and harassment on a regular basis, but the threats and the harassment have only intensified since the Syrian war broke out in 2011.
The abuse of the Abbas in Lebanon has been described by human rights organisations as the worst of its kind in the world.
In April, Lebanese human rights activist Saad Al-Khatib was arrested for publishing a documentary about the abuse at the Abasas farm.
In June, Lebanese authorities released footage of Lebanese security forces abusing and abusing the Ababs.
In August, Lebanese parliamentarians voted to establish an independent commission of inquiry into the Abads’ treatment in Syria.
The inquiry, which was set up in May, is expected to hold hearings in early 2019.
According to the Lebanese National Council for Human Rights, which monitors human rights in the country, the commission will consist of seven members, three of whom will be appointed by the government.
However, the government has yet to appoint the other three members.
The Lebanese government has not yet released any official response to the allegations.
The National Council said the Abadas have been subject to threats and abuse, and said that the authorities have been aware of their suffering and did nothing to stop it.
Human Rights Watch called on the Lebanese government to investigate the allegations and ensure that the commission conducts its work in line with international standards.
“There’s a long history of Lebanese families being subjected to abuse by Syrian authorities and, for decades, the Syrian government has systematically failed to protect them,” said Abbas Ghayb, director of the Beirut-based Middle East and North Africa programme at Human Rights Concerns.
“We’ve seen this in the past, especially with respect to the Abassi family, and now we see it in Lebanon.
What we see is that there is an unwillingness to do anything about the abuses committed against the AbASSAs.
We don’t know whether the authorities are going to take the matter to the International Criminal Court.”
The Syrian government and the Syrian opposition have repeatedly denied any responsibility for the abuses.
In response, Human Rights Campaign (HRW) has called on Lebanon’s government to ensure that those responsible for the abuse are brought to justice.
In a statement, HRW called on authorities to ensure “that those responsible are brought and that their crimes are fully investigated and that justice is carried out, including through the use of the International Court of Justice.”
The HRW statement continued: The Syrian opposition and the regime have been accused of failing to adequately investigate allegations of torture, ill-treatment and other serious abuses committed by the Syrian regime in the occupied Lebanese territory of Lebanon, and for failing to hold Syrian officials accountable for their crimes.
The regime’s failure to protect its own people, especially in the face of repeated threats and violence, has left a large and largely unarmed Syrian opposition movement in disarray.
Lebanon’s UN ambassador, Ahmed Al-Qassem, said on Monday that the country “will not allow anyone to be scapegoated for this.”
The UN Special Rapporteur on Syria, Lakhdar Brahimi, has also called on Syrian authorities to investigate allegations against the Syrian security forces.
Brahimi told Al Jazeera on Monday: There is a serious international concern about the treatment of Syrian nationals in the Lebanese security sector.
This is particularly true for the Abasse family, who are members of the Syrian National Coalition and have suffered terrible abuse from the Syrian authorities.
This report is based on a series of interviews with members of both the Lebanese armed forces and the security forces, including Syrian officials, former members of government security forces and human rights activists.
In addition to the interviewees, the report also includes a review of testimonies and videos from Syrian security and intelligence agencies and other sources.
HRW is calling on the international community to do more to protect Syrian refugees and their families from torture, rape and other forms of abuse.
“This is a very serious human rights violation,” Ghaybs said.
“The Lebanese government needs to make a statement and put an end to this.
Otherwise, they will only perpetuate the problem and not solve it.”
