Member of the political committee Fuad Aliko said that the Israeli, Russian and Iranian shielding of the Assad regime against falling reveals the regime’s decades-long claims about resistance to the Israeli occupation.
“While this propping up of the Assad regime exposes its ugly face, it proves that its only task is protecting the interests of international and regional powers at the expense of the Syrian people, their freedom and wealth,” Aliko said.
“We sent a letter to the United Nations and the Arab League explaining that the Russian direct military intervention in Syria violates international law and an occupation, which requires a firm position at the UN Security Council and the United Nations.”
“Though Syrians have been fully aware that the Russians and the Iranians will not hesitate to politically and militarily support Assad since the outset, they have never been dissuaded from working to achieve the goals of their revolution. Syrians are determined more than any other time to get rid of all forms of occupation, whether it was Russian, Iranian or Israeli, and nothing will deter them from restoring freedom and dignity.” (Source: Syrian Coalition)
