The President of the Syrian Opposition Coalition (SOC), Hadi Al-Bahra, along with members of the political committee and the General Assembly, convened with the Syrian Tribal Council in the town of Tal Abyad in Raqqa province. They engaged in discussions with tribal sheikhs and local dignitaries during their meeting.
The delegation comprised members of the political committee, including Abdulahad Astepho, Abdel Baset Abdel Latif, and Muhammad Ali Issa. SOC’s members Hussein Al-Raad, Muhammad Al-Hamdo, Mustafa Al-Hamida, and Amer Al-Bashir were also present, alongside the Minister of Agriculture in the Syrian Interim Government, Hayel Al-Kalsh.
The meeting revolved around evaluating the services offered to the town’s residents. Discussions touched on the prevailing security situation, the role of the Syrian National Army, and the contributions of the military police in maintaining safety.
The SOC’s delegation emphasized the significance of fostering solidarity within society, ensuring civil harmony, and addressing the challenges faced by the town’s inhabitants.
Al-Bahra emphasized the necessity of promptly finding effective solutions to address the issues encountered in the liberated areas east of the Euphrates. He stressed the importance of establishing communication with international relief and humanitarian organizations to facilitate their entry into the towns of Tal Abyad and Ras Al-Ayn.
Mustafa Al-Khalaf, Head of the Tribal Council in Tal Abyad, voiced concerns about the lack of support for the agricultural sector and the marketing of agricultural products. He appealed to the SOC and its interim government for assistance in resolving these agricultural challenges, whether through enhancing the marketing of agricultural products or reducing export duties.
He emphasized the need to standardize the selling price of wheat and explore ways to procure wheat from local producers in the Tal Abyad and Ras al-Ain regions instead of importing it from abroad.
