President Khoja said that “as the Syrian Revolution enters its fifth year, it is shifting away from being a revolution against tyranny and injustice to a battle for liberating Syria from the Iranian occupation after Assad handed over Syria to Iran and after Qassem Soleimani, the commander of the Qods Force of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard took on commanding the regime’s military operations.
With the Syrian Revolution going through a crucial turning point, Khoja calls on the Syrian people to unify efforts and close the ranks to put the revolution back on track and build a state of justice, equity and freedom.
Marking the fourth anniversary of the Syrian Revolution, Khoja stresses that toppling the head of the regime and its security apparatus is still a key demand of the revolution in any political solution, adding that the coming period will see efforts to empower and institutionalize the FSA so as to form the nucleus of a new national army. This step is the sole guarantor for a viable solution to the conflict.
“Four years ago, children in Dara’a scrawled the first drawing of freedom on the walls of their school, thus ending 50 years of tyranny and sparking the revolution against injustice and tyranny,” he added.
“Four years have passed since the outbreak of the revolution, and despite all the odds the Syrian people are still determined to regain freedom and dignity. Meanwhile, the Assad regime continues to murder, destroy and commit more crimes. The Syrian Revolution enters its fifth year with over 220,000 people killed, hundreds of thousands of detainees, and millions of displaced persons in the camps and in the neighboring countries.
