The Syrian National Coalition condemned the horrific massacres being committed by the criminal regime and its Russian backer amid dubious international silence. It held the international community directly responsible for all these massacres as it acts as a partner in everything that is taking place in Syria.

In a press release issued on Sunday, the Coalition stressed that these atrocities are “a direct result of the absence of any serious position on the part of the international community which continues to stand idly by thus allowing further deterioration of the situation.”

“In the past few hours alone, more than 23 towns and villages in Idlib were directly targeted by more than 30 airstrikes and barrel bomb attacks as well as heavy artillery shelling. The attacks are part of a long, systematic campaign aimed at exterminating and displacing civilians and destroying their villages and towns.”

The Coalition added: “No sane person can wait for criminals to stop their crime on their own. Criminals such as those belonging to Nazism, Fascism, and Asadism do not stop committing crimes voluntarily. The Syrian National Coalition holds the international community direct responsibility for all the massacres being committed by the regime and its sponsors as it acts as a silent partner in everything that is taking place in Syria.”

Three deadly attacks claimed the lives of at least 21 civilians, mostly women and children, and left around fifty others wounded. The attacks also caused widespread damage to infrastructure. (Source: Syrian National Coalition’s Media Department)

Intensified airstrikes by the Russian Air Force and heavy artillery and rocket shelling by the Assad regime forces forced more than 92,000 people from their homes in Idlib and Hama provinces in the past five weeks, local aid workers said.

The Emergency Response Coordinators Team in Northern Syria on Sunday said that 16,751 households comprising an estimated 92,109 people have been displaced from their towns and villages in southern rural Idlib and northwest rural Hama since November 1. The Team said that the fleeing households sought refuge in relatively safer areas in northern Idlib province.

The intensifying bombardment and shelling killed at least 156 people, including 52 children in the period between November 1 and December 8, the aid group added in a statement.

The statement condemned the ferocious onslaught being launched by the Assad regime forces and their Russian backer on northwestern Syria. The Team held Russia directly responsible for the atrocities taking place in northern Syria, noting that these atrocities led to marked increase in civilian casualties in Idlib province.

The Team called on all international bodies concerned with Syria to directly intervene to put an end to the assault on Idlib, urging humanitarian groups to urgently respond to the needs of the people arriving in northern Idlib province.

The Assad regime and Russian air forces stepped up bombardment on Idlib province on Saturday, killing 21 civilians, mostly women and children and wounding about fifty others. Russian jets bombed a popular market and a school in the town of Balioun, while regime helicopters dropped barrel bombs on the village of Abdita. Violent airstrikes also targeted a popular market and a school in the town of Al-Bara. (Source: Syrian National Coalition’s Media Department)
