A Turkish parliamentary committee said in a statement on Wednesday that the photographs, which appear to show the torture of detainees by the Syrian regime, point out to the tens of thousands of people killed but also the destruction of the values of humanity.

"These pictures are first-hand proof of the war crimes committed in Syria. They clearly show the level of violence in Syria," said the Human Rights Committee of the Turkish Grand National Assembly.

Referring to the report, prepared by significant prosecutors from the International Criminal Court and released on January 20, the Committee said: "The blood guilty regime has committed a crime against humanity...11,000 people killed by torture and starvation."

More than 100,000 people have been killed and around nine million people have been displaced since the start of Syria civil war in 2011.

Turkey hosts around 700,000 Syrian refugees in its southern provinces.
