Syrian Coalition: Latest Rebels’ Gains Send Clear Messages to Assad and ISIS

Khalid al-Ali, member of the Syrian Coalition, said that "the remarkable gains made by rebels lately in various areas across Syria are a message to the international community that “your failure to stop Assad’s barrel bomb and chemical attacks does not in any way mean that we will accept to live under tyranny and dictatorship anymore. While we have tried every possible means to reach a political solution and avoid the bloodshed, Bashar al-Assad arrogantly rejected all our proposals and still insists on using Syrians as a fuel to achieve Iran’s expansionist goals in the region. The rebels’ setting up of a joint military operation room in northern and western rural Hama, as well as the high-level military coordination in Qalamoun were a key factor in turning the tide of the war against regime forces and their backers. These rebels’ gains clearly demonstrate that the Assad regime is weaker than everyone thinks, and that it can be toppled if rebel battalions are unified into one coherent body and under one command. As for ISIS and other extremist groups, they should realize that the Syrian people, who rebelled against the most savage dictatorship in the region, will not accept to be ruled by extremists, but will continue to make the biggest sacrifices to build a democratic, free and pluralist Syria.” (Source: Syrian Coalition)
