The President of the Syrian Opposition Coalition (SOC), Hadi Al-Bahra, has emphasized that the harrowing scenes from the Caesar Photos, as well as the scenes of the Al-Tadamon Massacre, the Queiq River Massacre, and various others, continue to linger in the global consciousness. He asserted that these visuals are unmistakable proof of the brutal treatment inflicted by the Assad regime upon Syrian detainees.
Al-Bahra highlighted that these detainees were apprehended and disappeared solely due to their differing political opinions or their participation in peaceful demonstrations advocating for the restoration of their human and constitutional rights.
Underlining the absence of concerted international efforts to secure the release of detainees and unveil the fate of those forcibly disappeared, Al-Bahra argued that such negligence has only served to embolden the repressive and terrorizing practices of the Assad regime in areas under their control.
Al-Bahra further emphasized the inadequacy of mere condemnation and characterization of the events inside detention centers by the international community without substantive action. He pointed out that hundreds of thousands of innocent individuals are anxiously awaiting their freedom.
