The Syrian Coalition calls on the United Nations to assume legal, humanitarian and ethical responsibilities towards the tragedy of the Syrian people. It also calls upon the Arab League to condemn the Russian aggression on Syria and to hold an emergency meeting to discuss its implications.
The Syrian Coalition renews condemnation of terrorist acts committed by the Assad regime as well as Russian and Iranian aggression, denouncing the UN lukewarm position on these violations.
“The regime’s latest military escalation in Homs province, backed by Russia and Iran, is designed to complete the plan to empty Homs province of its indigenous population and to execute the “Useful Syria” project undertaken by Iran in Damascus.
Under the pretext of countering ISIS, Russia’s air force struck the towns of Rastan, Talbeesah, Girnata and Um Sharshouh in northern rural Homs, killing and injuring dozens of civilians. Meanwhile, regime forces continue to pound the besieged neighborhood of Waer in Homs with heavy artillery, amid regime’s build-up of troops, including many Iranian and Afghan mercenaries, to what appears to be an attempt to storm the towns of Rastan and Talbeesah.
