Syrian Coalition Slams Attempts to Force IDPs Out of Syrian Desert
The Syrian Coalition said that civilians in the Syrian Desert, who live in dire conditions in camps as well as fighters of the Free Syrian Army have been receiving constant threats that they will be bombed by the Russian and Assad regime’s air forces. They have been also subjected to continuing attacks by the terrorist Iranian militias.
In a press release issued on Sunday, the Coalition said that “civilians and the FSA fighters are also being subjected to increasing pressure to leave the area.”
“However, fighters of Usoud Alsharqiya and Ahmed Alabdo FSA groups insist they would continue to confront the mercenaries of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard and ISIS as well as to protect civilians in the area, who were mostly displaced as a result of Assad's crimes,” the Coalition added.
The Coalition called on the international anti-ISIS coalition to provide the necessary protection for civilians and the FSA groups operating in the Syrian Desert. The Coalition stressed “the need for the ceasefire to cover all the area and for stopping the threats being made by the Russian forces.” The Coalition also called “for enabling the FSA fighters to confront all terrorist militias in the area.”
The Coalition commended “efforts being made by the brothers in Jordan to deliver humanitarian aid to civilians in the Syrian Desert and to provide them with the necessities of a decent life.”
The Coalition reasserted “the strong ties between the Syrian and Jordanian peoples and its keenness to strengthen these ties.” It commended Jordan’s “constructive efforts to meet the aspirations of the Syrian people for freedom, dignity, and justice.” (Source: Syrian Coalition’s Media Department)
