Revolution bodies in the liberated areas in northwestern Syria organized protests to show solidarity with the people in Idlib and rural Hama and to condemn the Assad regime and Russia’s ongoing massacres against civilians.
Local activists said that a demonstration took place in the town of al-Bab in rural Aleppo after the Friday prayers. The demonstrators called for the overthrow of the regime and for the perpetrators of crimes against civilians to be held accountable. They also slammed the silence of the international community on these crimes.
Thousands of people gathered in the town of Azaz in northern rural Aleppo to condemn the Assad regime and Russia’s atrocious crimes in Idlib and Hama provinces. Prominent activist Rania Kisar, who was a witness to the deadly attack on the town of Maaret al-Nu’man on Monday in which more than 50 civilians were killed, was among the participants in the protests.
Kisar called on the people of the town of Azaz and the rest of the liberated northwest to “stay true to the cause” of the Syrian people, stressing that the people of the northwest count on the Free Syrian Army for protection.
Dozens also gathered in the city of Idlib on Friday to demonstrate against the Assad regime and Russia’s ongoing onslaught on northwestern Syria.
The demonstrators gathered near the Martyrs’ Roundabout to condemn the relentless bombardment of civilians, vital facilities and medical centers which killed hundreds of civilians and injured thousands more as well as displaced hundreds of thousands towards the Turkish border.
The Syrian Coalition on Friday sent a letter to 26 friendly states, the Islamic Cooperation Organization, the Gulf Cooperation Council, and the Arab League calling for urgent action to address the “critical situation” in Idlib and Hama.
In a press conference on Thursday, President of the Syrian Coalition, Anas al-Abda, said that the Syrian people are victim of genocide in which the international community is complicit directly or indirectly.”
Al-Abda stressed that the talk about a political solution now is “a delusion aimed at deceiving the Syrian people as long as massacres and crimes continue against them.” (Source: Syrian Coalition’s Media Department)
