The Syrian Coalition’s General Assembly strongly condemned the Assad regime’s bombing of Al-Quds Hospital in the neighborhood of Al-Suakkari in Aleppo on Wednesday. Over 30 people were killed in the airstrike that targeted the hospital, including a dentist and the last pediatrician in the city.
President of the Syrian Coalition Anas al-Abdah said that massacres the regime carried out over the past week in Idlib, Aleppo and Rural Damascus against civilians, civil defense centers, and hospitals prove without a shadow of doubt that that the Assad regime is not serious about engaging in a real political solution.
Speaking during the first session of the 28th General Assembly meeting which began earlier today and will last till Saturday, Abdah said that the Assad regime is keen on disrupting the political solution and determined to pursue a military solution with the help of Russia and Iran.
Abdah added that the Assad regime has effectively “buried the truce” after carrying out over 30 massacres and around 2,500 breaches of the truce by its forces as well as 165 by Russian forces. The international community, meanwhile, has largely remained silent over these massacres and violations, he added.
Abdah pointed out that the Syrian revolution is facing challenges at all levels, expressing hope that the current General Assembly meeting will produce an integrated action plan to address these challenges
Abdah referred to attempts by some international actors to derail the Syrian revolution away from its goals, pointing out that the Syrian armed and political opposition need, now more than ever before, to remain steadfast until the goals of the revolution are achieved.
The General Assembly will discuss the formation of a new interim government to be based in the liberated areas; increasing the representation of women in the Coalition; and co-opting FSA groups on to the ranks of the Coalition. (Source: Syrian Coalition)
