President of the Syrian National Coalition, Anas al-Abda, met with a group of activists who were displaced from the province of Homs in the town of Azaz in northern rural Aleppo on Thursday. The meeting discussed the conditions facing the IDPs in northwestern Syria and the latest political developments.
President Al-Abda reaffirmed the Coalition’s commitment to defending the rights of the Syrian people, especially the return of displaced people and refugees to their areas of origin after a real political transition is brought about in line with UN Security Council resolution 2254.
He pointed out that the mass forced displacement being carried out by the Assad regime and its backers from all regions to Syria’s north are blatant war crimes. He added that these crimes are part of the strategy of the regime and its backers to bring about a demographic change in the structure of Syrian society.
President Al-Abda stressed that the inaction of the international community gave the Assad regime a green light to commit more crimes against Syrian civilians, adding that these crimes will not go unpunished no matter how long it takes.
President Al-Abdah said that the Syrian Interim Government has already developed special programs to support the displaced people in the liberated areas, calling for unity and the combining of efforts to improve the situation and help improve the services.
