General Assembly Extends Mission to Form FSA High Military Command

The Syrian Coalition extended the mission to form a new High Military Command for another two months during the ongoing 23rd General Assembly meeting.

The committee submitted its report during the morning sessions of the meeting and reviewed the consultations it held with rebel factions. Members of the committee described these consultations as "positive and fruitful," adding that more time is needed  to ensure equal representation of all rebel factions in the new military leadership.

The General Assembly meeting will also discuss the situation on the ground, legal issues, restructuring the Syrian Coalition, more female representation, the financial system, and recommendations made after meeting with the Kurdish National Council.

The 23rd General Assembly meeting began yesterday in Istanbul. Electing a new presidential body is at the top of the agenda as well as the situation on the ground and the impact of the Iranian nuclear agreement towards the Syrian Revolution and the region.

Spokesman for the Syrian Coalition Salem al-Meslet said that the three-day General Assembly meeting will also discuss the proposal put forward by the international envoy to Syria, Staffan de Mistura, to the UN Secretary General after completing bilateral consultations. The meeting will also discuss the ongoing efforts aimed at the formation of a new FSA High Military Command.

Moreover, the meeting will also tackle all internal issues and emerging challenges, to establish safe zones, civilly administered in Northern Syria. The meeting will finally address mechanisms for the moving of the Syrian Coalition and the Syrian Interim government to the safe areas to provide services to Syrians living there.
