The Syrian Coalition urges the European Union to take firm stand of the Russian aggression on Syria and to increase humanitarian aid to Syrian refugees in the wake of the Russian military strikes on Syria.
At a meeting with the European Union reprehensive Lara Scarpetta on Tuesday, the Syrian Coalition’s political committee stressed that the Russian airstrikes are exclusively targeting civilians and rebel fighters allowing ISIS to extend its control over more territory and consolidate its grip on many areas in Syria.
They pointed to the recent dramatic increase of the number of displaced persons and refugees from the southern countryside of Aleppo and northern rural Homs as a result of the Russian aerial attacks. Approximately 85,000 civilians were forced out of their homes in just two weeks, with many families now living in the open.
Scarpetta presented an explanation of the recommendations put forward by the European Union at its last meeting on Syria. (Source: Syrian Coalition)
