Member of the political committee in the Syrian Opposition Coalition (SOC), Abdullah Kaddo, has highlighted the deepening crises in Syria, particularly under the rule of the Baath Party. The Baath Party has been monopolizing power, consolidating wealth, and severely restricting the freedoms of the Syrian population to suppress political activity.
In an article titled “The Escalation of External Intervention in the Syrian Scene,” Kaddo emphasized that the Assad regime, from the era of Assad the father, has relied on external, regional, and international forces to thwart the aspirations of the majority of Syrians. He underlined that the Syrian revolution is driven by the goal of restoring Syria to all its citizens and ending external interference in its internal affairs.
Kaddo pointed out that the Syrian people are paying a high price for the regime’s reliance on foreign powers from the very beginning. He noted that the Assad regime has lost its credibility over the past 12 years, particularly with the commencement of the peaceful revolutionary movement in Suwayda about two months ago, which garnered solidarity from Syrians across various regions, including the Syrian coast.
Regarding the attack on the Military Academy in the city of Homs on October 5, Kaddo explained that all available evidence suggests that the regime is the primary suspect behind the attack, which further exacerbates sectarian tensions within Syrian society.
In closing, Kaddo emphasized the urgent need for the international community to promptly implement UN resolutions on Syria, with a particular emphasis on UN Resolution 2245. This action is crucial to halt the ongoing bloodshed in Syria and facilitate a much-needed political transition.
