President of the Syrian Coalition Riad Seif said that the forced displacement operations aimed at bringing about demographic change in Syria constitute “war crimes.” He stressed the need for the United Nations to take concrete action to prevent these operations and hold to account those responsible.
During a teleconference between President Seif and members of the political committee with FSA commanders, medics, and rescue workers in the neighborhood of Qaboun in Damascus on Saturday, Seif warned of plans by the Assad regime and the allied Iranian militias to force a new evacuation deal on residents of the district.
Doctor Nizar, head of the medical committee in Qaboun, said that that are many injuries in the district that need urgent treatment, the most critical of which are neurological injuries. He added that they lack the necessary medical equipment and medicine to treat these injuries.
Head of the civil defense in Qaboun Abu Hassan said that the district has been subjected to constant bombing for more than two months, noting that around 80 percent of the rebel-held district has been reduced to rubble.
Abu Hasan added that around 300 families are still living in Qaboun under constant danger of regime bombardment. (Source: Syrian Coalition’s Media Department)
