Member of the political committee Badr Jamous criticized statements made by European sides that called for engaging Bashar al-Assad in the interim period, with others calling for collaborating with him in the fight against ISIS.
“The international community must work together for the departure of Assad and his ruling elite and for the formation of a transitional governing body with full powers in accordance with the Geneva I Communique as the only force capable of effectively fighting terrorism.”
Jamous pointed out that these propositions “are just desperate attempts to cover up the Assad regime’s crimes and to try to breathe life in it again,” stressing that the Syrian Coalition and the rebels and all the Syrian opposition spectra will stand united to thwart such attempts.”
He condemns Russia’s latest military build-up in Syria and its direct military intervention alongside the Assad regime, noting that Russia has become a partner of the regime in its war on the Syrian people.
Jamous calls on the Russian government to withdraw its forces completely from Syria, warning of the consequences of such acts. He warns that rebels will regard any foreign fighters fighting alongside Assad as a legitimate target.” (Source: Syrian Coalition)
