The Syrian Opposition Coalition (SOC) organized an Iftar banquet for dignitaries and members of the Revolutionary Council in the town of Al-Bab, rural Aleppo, to mark the holy month of Ramadan. Following breakfast, the attendees engaged in discussions regarding the region’s security, service, economic, and health conditions, as well as the latest political developments in Syria.
SOC’s President, Salem Al-Meslet, the Secretary of the political committee, Abdul-Majid Barakat, and the Coordinator of the SOC’s office in the liberated areas, Najib Rahmon, attended the banquet alongside local notables, sheikhs, commanders of the Syrian National Army, and political and revolutionary figures.
During the discussions, the attendees focused on the primary problems in the Al-Bab region, specifically the service-related issues such as water and security. They also addressed the difficulties facing traders and industrialists, emphasizing the need to explore trading opportunities with Turkey, rather than solely importing materials, and to promote exports, particularly in industries that operate in liberated areas.
Additionally, the attendees highlighted the hazards of the drug trade in the region and emphasized the importance of raising awareness to prevent its spread. They also stressed the need to address the issue of weapons control in urban centers, as the indiscriminate spread of weapons could pose a threat to community peace.
Moreover, they underlined the importance of providing services and contributing to laying the foundations for stability to revitalize the region’s economy.
