Member of the Syrian Coalition’s political committee Adnan Rahmoun condemned the war crimes committed by Russia in Syria including the recent crimes carried out in Idlib and Aleppo provinces. He stressed that those remaining silent over such crimes are complicit in them.
Rahmoun said that Russia is using Syria to test new methods of warfare including the use of new weapons and training troops and mercenaries, which is all happening right under nose of the international community. The international community has not yet lifted a finger towards stopping war crimes Russia and the Assad regime have been committing in Syria, Rahmoun added.
Rahmoun called on the Russian leadership to abandon its policies towards the Syrian people and stop the state terrorism it has been practicing in Syria.
Activists said that at least 21 civilians, including women and children, were killed and over 50 others wounded in airstrikes by the Assad regime and Russian air forces on Idlib city on Wednesday. Fifteen more civilians, including children, were killed in similar attacks on the towns of Ariha, Maaret Alnouman and Maaret Misreen in rural Idlib on Wednesday.
In rural Aleppo, meanwhile, Russian airstrikes left over 11 civilians killed and over 30 others wounded on Wednesday, activist said.
Internationally banned weapons, including cluster bombs, have been systematically used in Russian attacks on rebel-held areas across Syria, as shown in videos and photos published on a daily basis by Syrian activists.
