This shocking report exposes the routine and sadistic torture the Syrian military has used on prisoners despite Assad refuting claims that his government is waging a brutal crackdown.

Despite the UN accusing the Syrian government forces of crimes against humanity, Assad defiantly refuses to acknowledge the torture and killings taking place under his command. The testimonies of those involved tell a different story. One man who served for a decade in Syria's much-feared Military Intelligence gives a terrifying account of the torture that he and Assad's other enforcers would use on children as well as adults. A 13-year-old speaks boy speaks about how he was electrocuted and the "ultimate pain" of having his big toe nail ripped out with pliers by Assad's thugs. In another account, an illiterate farmer speaks eloquently about how he endured a month of torture and Kafka-esque interrogation,leaving him with permanent damage.
