Member of the Syrian Coalition George Sabra said that the crimes committed by the Assad and Iranian regimes will not break the will of the Syrian people or force them to succumb to the regime in the Geneva negotiations. On the contrary, these crimes will bolster the Syrian people’s resolve to topple the Assad regime and regain freedom and dignity, Sabra added.
In meeting with President-elect of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI) in the French capital Paris on Friday, Sabra said that during consultations with the local council of Daraya, which has been under crippling siege by regime forces for over three years, council representatives urged him not to yield to the regime in the negotiations. “Do not worry about us or the blockade imposed on us. Think about the revolution and the fate of the people,” Sabra quoted Daraya local council as saying.
Sabra, who is also deputy head of the opposition’s negotiating delegation in Geneva, pointed out that the population of Daraya decreased from 80,000 to just around 8,000 as a result of the siege and constant bombardment by regime and militants of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC). Nonetheless, the people of Daraya have not allowed their city to fall in the hands of the enemy.
Sabra stressed that the battle for the Syrian and Iranian peoples against the terrorist regimes in Damascus and Tehran is one and the same, adding that the Iranian resistance and the Syrian revolution share common goals and values.
Sabra praised the decades-long struggle of People’s Mujahedin of Iran (PMOI) against the Iranian regime, saying this struggle is rich in useful lessons and experiences.
For her part, Mrs. Rajavi highly commended the unrelenting revolution against the Assad regime, saying: “We in the Iranian Resistance share with you all the pain and suffering you have endured in the battle against Assad. Your victory against Assad, which we see as inevitable, is a victory for the Iranian people and the Iranian resistance.”
“The steadfastness and determination shown by the city of Aleppo is a source of pride for all mankind and will always live on as a symbol for resistance and determination to defeat dictatorship and tyranny,” Mrs. Rajavi said.
“Solidarity between the Syrian and Iranian peoples in these difficult times will undoubtedly speed up the overthrowing of those thuggish regimes in Damascus and Tehran and will spare the two peoples much blood,” Mrs. Rajavi added.
Mrs. Rajavi referred to the humiliating defeats recently suffered by the IRGC militias around Aleppo, stressing that the Iranian regime is now in an untenable position and will eventually lose the battle against the Syrian people. (Source: Syrian Coalition)
