President of the Syrian Coalition Anas al-Abdah said that the international community’s soft stance in dealing with Assad, who continues to commit massacres against civilians in Syria, is seen by him as a license to carry on with his crimes against the Syrian people.
Abdah also said that this complete inaction towards Assad’s atrocities represents a bias in favor of a serial killer and a war criminal.
At least 13 civilians, mostly women and children, were killed and over 30 others were wounded on Saturday when regime forces bombed a popular market in the District of Douma in Rural Damascus with heavy artillery.
The Assad regime’s air force continues to relentlessly hit residential areas in the Aleppo neighborhoods of Tariq al-Bab, Bustan al-Qasr, Salahaddin, al-Mash’had, al-Amiriyah, Bai’din, al-Jandoul and Bani Zeid. No figure of the casualties resulted has been released by civil defense teams as they are still recovering victims from under the rubble.
Activists said that at least 20 civilians, including children, were killed and many more wounded in intensifying aerial bombing of Aleppo on Friday by regime and Russian forces. Three more civilians were killed and around 15 others were injured on Friday evening in a barrel bomb attack by the Assad regime. (Source: Syrian Coalition)
