The Kurdish National Council in Syria condemned the barbaric onslaught on Aleppo by the Assad regime and its allies who are committing war crimes in the city with the use of internationally banned weapons. The council called upon “forces of peace” and human rights advocates in the region and the rest of the world to stop the ongoing carnage in Aleppo.
In a statement released on Sunday, the council called for a cease-fire in the city and for opening of safe corridors to ensure the delivery of food and medical supplies to the besieged neighborhoods in the city. These measures are crucial to the creation of appropriate environment for the resumption of negotiations in Geneva. The political process needs to be put back on track to reach a solution needed to transition Assad out and build a democratic state, the Council added.
The Council stressed that the brutal attacks on Aleppo by regime forces and their allies constitute war crimes as they target mainly innocent civilians. It slammed the international community’s failure to stop these crimes. (Source: Syrian Coalition)
