Syrian Arab Republic
Practice Relating to Rule 158. Prosecution of War Crimes
According to the Report on the Practice of the Syrian Arab Republic, the Syrian Arab Republic considers that the duty to try or extradite persons alleged to have committed grave breaches, as defined in the 1949 Geneva Conventions and the 1977 Additional Protocol I, is part of customary law. It considers that no such duty exists in regard to violations committed in non-international conflicts.
