Twenty School Children Killed in an Air Raid on a School in Al Hasaka

Nasr al-Hariri, Secretary General of the Syrian Coalition, condemns the massacre committed by Assad’s air force in the village of Bilan in rural Al Hasaka. Activists said that 20 children were killed and dozens injured when Assad’s air force hit a school in the village. Hariri reiterates his calls on the international community to shoulder its responsibilities towards civilians and to stop turning a blind eye to Assad crimes. “As a result to heinous silence the Syrians killed by Assad have become mere numbers documented by rights group,” he said. He also calls for speeding up the arming of the Free Syrian Army and the establishment of safe havens along Syria’s northern and southern borders. Assad’s air forces bombing of a school in rural Al Hasaka followed similar massacre in the town of Karnaz in rural Hama where dozens of children were killed. Salem al-Meslet, spokesman for the Syrian Coalition, calls for stepping the international efforts to put an end to the genocidal war waged by the Assad regime against the Syrian people using all kinds of weapons. “The Assad regime’s repeated targeting of schools and hospitals requires practical and decisive stance by the international community against these barbaric acts aimed at destroying education in Syria and spreading ignorance among its people.
