The Syrian Coalition’s Reaction to the Security Council's Statement

Media Statement
Syrian Coalition
Istanbul, Turkey
June 08, 2013

After the devastation of latest battle in Qusair, the Security Council issued a statement to open safe humanitarian corridors into Qusair.  The Syrian Coalition welcomes this decree from the UN and insists that this statement be respected to save the precious lives of civilians under siege.
Syrians have been given hope by the UNSC’s latest statement and encourage the UN to adopt it as a resolution, confirmed by these steps: 

  • Compel the invading forces to withdraw and stop the bloodshed in Syria
  • Secure humanitarian corridors to distressed areas
  • Support the revolution, in favor of the Syrian people in their struggle for democracy and freedom

These points, along with the UN’s statement, will guarantee measures to refer Assad, those who have committed war crimes, and all supporters of the regime’s atrocities to the International Criminal Court.  The Syrian Coalition strongly urges that those who are responsible for murdering, raping and torturing innocent civilians be prosecuted and brought to justice.
