A delegation from the Syrian Opposition Coalition (SOC) visited the town of Al-Bab, located in rural Aleppo. Their visit was prompted by concerns over the deteriorating conditions of those injured in the recent joint bombing incident in the nearby town of Qabasin. The attack, which occurred over the past two days, was a result of coordinated shelling by the Assad regime forces and the PYD militia, leaving several individuals dead and wounded.
Bahjat Atassi, a member of the SOC’s political committee, emphasized the apparent support of Assad regime forces for the PYD militia in their ongoing conflict against the people residing in the eastern Euphrates region. The affected population in these areas has risen against the PYD militia’s presence and seeks to expel them.
Atassi further highlighted the regime’s deliberate targeting of liberated areas in Aleppo’s countryside as a tactic to pressure civilians, discouraging them from taking action against the PYD militia, which has been committing crimes against the local populace for years.
He stressed that both the regime and the PYD militia are actively engaged in efforts to undermine Syria’s social fabric, continuing to oppress civilians and perpetrate crimes against them.
In recent incidents, the town of Qabasin and the village of Tal Al-Hawa in eastern rural Aleppo witnessed rocket shelling originating from areas jointly controlled by the Assad regime forces and the PYD militia. These attacks resulted in the injury of a child, as reported by the Syrian Civil Defense.
On September 1, a separate artillery shelling incident took place, resulting in the deaths of five children and leaving six others, along with an adult woman and man from the same family, injured. The shelling was directed at the village of Al-Mahsenli in eastern rural Aleppo.
