Syrian Coalition Warns of Dangers of Assad Regime & Allies’ Escalation as it Calls for Protecting Civilians in Idlib
The Syrian Coalition denounced the international community’s total inaction towards what is happening on the ground and the tragic reality caused by the constant, indiscriminate shelling by the Assad regime and Iranian militias with Russia cover and in violation of the Idlib agreement.
In a press release issued on Thursday, the Coalition condemned the Assad regime and its allies’ targeting of unarmed civilians in Idlib province. It said: “As the this situation continues, the crimes continue and civilians continue to be targeted as if it became a new norm and as if there was no agreement in place or guarantors who need to be concerned about its durability.
The Coalition reiterated its condemnation of attacks and actions violating the agreement which was reached in Sochi.
“The world is required not to waste more time; exert pressure on the Assad regime and its supporters to force them to commit to stopping crime and shelling; and push the political process forward in accordance with UN Security Council resolutions and the Geneva Communique of 2012,” the Coalition said.
The Coalition called on parties and guarantors of the Idlib agreement as well as the international community to closely follow the situation on the ground and not to let civilians be subjected to indiscriminate shelling aimed at killing or displacing them.
“It is imperative that the international community realize the dangers of the escalating attacks by the Assad regime and the Iranian militias as well as to realize their real objectives and to work to stop them and to spare the region its catastrophic consequences.” (Source: Syrian Coalition’s Media Department)
