The Syrian National Coalition welcomes Great Britain’s decision to designate the Hizballah group with all its wings as a terrorist organization. It also welcomes the legal implications of this move for the members of this militia and its supporters, financiers and collaborators, including the freezing of its entire assets.
The crimes and violations being committed by this mafia-like terrorist organization against the Syrian people are more than horrific and grave. Its leaders are responsible for the killing of tens of thousands of children, women and elderly people, which requires a legal action to hold this organization accountable.
The delay on the part of the world’s governments and international organizations in taking principled positions on such organizations and the countries that sponsor them is exacerbating the crises and causing the unjustifiable loss of countless lives.
The Syrian people and all the peoples of the region are looking forward to the end of the role of this organization as an arm of the Iranian regime. They also expect an end to the disasters this group has brought to the region.
