On 6 July 2012 the UN Human Rights Council adopted Resolution 20/22 on the situation in Syria. Resolution 20/22 deplores the widespread, systematic and gross violations of human rights and the indiscriminate targeting of civilians by the Syrian authorities, as well as the lack of implementation by the Syrian government of the six-point plan. The resolution also reiterates an urgent call upon the Syrian authorities to put an immediate end to all violence and all human rights violations, and to meet its responsibility to protect the Syrian population.
