The Syrian Coalition pays tribute to the heroes of Free Syrian Army (FSA) and honors their commitment to the values and ideals of the Syrian Revolution. The FSA issued a statement about the Syrian Coast in which they pledge to protect civilians and families in the area, stressing that their operations are completely military, and that they will only target security checkpoints, observing posts, military barracks, and Assad’s militia. The statement emphasizes that the role of the FSA is not to target civilians but to protect them from Assad forces.

The statement also states that FSA hospitals will admit all wounded people, whether they are civilians or soldiers. It also warns all FSA battalions against taking any action that might jeopardize local residents in the areas of military operations.

The Syrian Coalition renews its commitment to the principles described in the FSA statement, calling once again on Assad forces to lay down their weapons and stop killing Syrian civilians.

We ask for Mercy for our martyrs, health for our wounded, and freedom for our detainees.

Long live Syria and its people, free and with honor.
