President of the Syrian National Coalition, Anas Abdah, and head of the Syrian Interim Government (SIG), Abdurrahman Mustafa, visited the headquarters of the Syrian National Army’s General Staff and toured the battlefronts against the Assad regime forces and Iranian militias. Abdah met the SNA commanders as he ascertained the course of battles, combat readiness, and the morale of the SNA fighters.

Abdah listened to a briefing from Minister of Defense Major General Salim Idris and field commanders on the latest military developments in Idlib and the SNA’s recapture of the strategic town of Al-Nairab. He also checked on the military preparations to fend off the Russian and Assad regime’s onslaught against civilians across the freed territories in northwestern Syria.

Abdah praised the courage and heroism being shown by the SNA fighters in the face of the Russian military machine. He stressed that this heroic resistance will significantly contribute to changing the course of the Syrian Revolution and force Russia to sit at the negotiating so as to bring about a political solution through the implementation of international resolutions, most importantly UN resolution 2254.

President of the Syrian National Coalition, Anas Abdah, and head of the Syrian Interim Government, Abdurrahman Mustafa, visited a newly established IDP camp in the Sharran sub-district of Afrin to check on the conditions of its residents.

President Abdah listened to what happened with the camp's residents, the immense suffering they endured while escaping the bombings by Russia and the Assad regime, and the extremely dire conditions in which they are living. He also listened to their basic needs.

The camp is home to 80 households who have been recently displaced from the Idlib province which has been subjected to a brutal assault by Russia and the Assad regime forces for several months.

The Coalition and SIG provided direct support to secure water, electricity, and bread for the camp residents as they promised to communicate with donors to ensure that the rest of their needs are met as soon as possible.

President Abdah talked about the international campaign the Coalition has recently launched to mobilize support for Idlib and ratchet up pressure on Russia to stop its military operations; agree to a ceasefire; and return to the political process aimed at the implementation of international resolutions and meeting the goals of the revolution for freedom and dignity.

Moreover, President Abdah made it clear that the Coalition gives high priority to the issue of the displaced people and refugees as it always raises this issue in the various international conferences and forums. (Source: Syrian National Coalition’s Media Department)

Secretary-General of the Syrian National Coalition, Abdulbaseet Abdullatief, and members of the political committee visited the Turkish city of Hatay where they met with the Syrian community and listened to their basic needs.

Abdullatief said that the Coalition will continue to meet Syrian communities in all regions and countries on a regular basis. He stressed the need for continued communication and unity in these circumstances and highlight the determination of the Syrian people to overcome hardships and achieve their goals, namely of overthrowing the Assad regime and regaining freedom and dignity.

Abdullatief gave an overview on the Coalition's international efforts to ensure an end to military operations in northwestern Syria. He emphasized that the Syrian people’s main battle today is against Russia which is committing massacres against civilians on a daily basis, attacking hospitals and other vital civilian centers, and preventing any breakthrough in the political process. The Assad regime, meanwhile, has become a mere militia that is involved in an aggression against the Syrian people along with other foreign militias.

He pointed out that the Coalition is working closely with the United Nations and international donors to provide relief and humanitarian support to the internally displaced people. He added that although some aid agencies have responded and increased the number of aid trucks, the aid still falls short of meeting the growing needs of the IDP in northwestern Syria.
