Syrian Coalition Mourns FSA Commander Ahmed Masto
June 8, 2018
The Syrian Coalition mourns the death of the Free Syrian Army commander, the revolutionary leader and athlete Ahmed Masto, also known by the nom de guerre Abu Aslan al-Kurdi who was assassinated by terrorists in Afrin on Friday.
Abu Aslan joined the anti-regime peaceful movement since its inception in Aleppo city, his hometown. He was active in the areas of sports and relief work, and was at the forefront of the Kurdish rebels who liberated Afrin from the terrorist organizations, especially the militia of the Democratic Union Party (PYD). Masto worked avidly on building bridges among Syria’s sons and daughters and was acclaimed for speaking out against injustice.
Abu Aslan will always be remembered as a fine example of the true rebel who, through both his words and deeds, remained faithful to the revolution and was the embodiment of its slogan ‘the Syrian people are one.
The Syrian Coalition extends its heartfelt condolences to the family and friends of Masto as well as to all families who lost loved ones on the path of freedom. The Syrian people will always remain true to the sacrifices of their fallen heroes and will continue the struggle until the goals of the revolution of freedom and dignity are achieved.
May our wounded recover, our detainees be free, and our fallen heroes rest in peace
Long live Syria and the Syrian people, free and with honor
