Head of the Syrian interim government Jawad Abu Hatab renewed calls on the Friends of the Syrian people to step up support for the projects the government is developing to serve the population in the liberated areas.
Abu Hatab emphasized that the interim government is ready to implement those projects with the required speed and accuracy, noting that there are 6 million people living in the liberated areas and in need for urgent support.
Abu Hatab on Thursday toured the town of Azaz in northern rural Aleppo where he met with representatives of civic groups. The representatives highlighted the most urgent needs that must be met to provide better services to the civilian population.
Abu Hatab also met with officials tasked with the formation of a unified judicial council in the liberated areas. He said that the interim government will open a number of courthouses in the coming days, with the central court to be headquartered in the town of Azaz.
Abu Hatab also met with heads of the local council and municipality in Azaz as well as director of the electricity station. The meetings discussed fixing electricity and water issues as well as ways to improve the performance of the municipality.
Abu Hatab met with Brigadier General Qasim Qasim and Brigadier General Adib Shallaf and a number of FSA officers to discuss developing a plan to reactivate administrations of regions, counties and districts and secure the necessary staff.
Abu Hatab concluded the tour by checking on the progress of midterm exams for the Teachers’ Institute in Azaz. He said that nearly 1,600 students in all branches have so far graduated from institute, adding that the institute is very important in the preparation of qualified teachers.
