The 42nd session of the Syrian Coalition’s General Assembly begun on Saturday with participants focusing on the latest developments with regards to the security and stability in the liberated areas as well as on the situation in eastern Syria which is under the control of the militia of the Democratic Union Party (PYD).
The meeting will also discuss the latest developments with regards to the Geneva political process, the start of the work of the Constitutional Committee, and the rest of the baskets included in the Geneva process.
Members of the General Assembly condemned the Assad regime’s attempts to disrupt the Idlib Agreement through the repeated violations claiming the lives of dozens of people with the help of the Iranian terrorist militias. The latest of these violations took place in the town of Zallaqiyat in northern rural Hama where 23 fighters of the Free Syrian Army were killed in a regime attack on their positions on Friday. The violations also included the horrible massacre that the Assad regime committed in the town of Jarjanaz in rural Idlib last week.
The members also discussed the activation of civil administration in northern Syria as they stressed the need to support the civil administration as key to the restoration of stability and security as well as the provision of better services for civilians.
Vice-president of the Syrian Coalition Badr Jamous said: “We are working on a number of projects aimed at introducing radical changes in the general situation of the region by benefiting from the cessation of military operations following the Idlib agreement.” He pointed out that these changes will focus on ending the military situation and making a transition to the civil administration which will prioritize the rehabilitation of the judiciary and police.
Jamous stressed that the Assad regime’s continued violations “confirmed our view on the need to achieve a comprehensive political transition and thwart attempts to rehabilitate the Assad regime.”
Jamous pointed out that “the future of Syria is linked to the establishment of a new system of rule that is based on the Geneva Communique of 2012 and the UN Security Council resolution 2254. (Source: Syrian Coalition’s Media Department)
