The Syrian Opposition Coalition (SOC) met with civil and revolutionary bodies from the town of Minnigh in rural Aleppo and discussed with them the latest developments on the ground and in the political process.
The meeting brought together SOC’s President Nasr Al-Hariri, members of the political committee, Badr Jamous, Muhammad Yahya Maktabi, and Yasser Al-Farhan, and members of the General Assembly Ahmed Bakkoura, Najeeb Al-Rahmoun and Ahmed Al-Shehadi.
Al-Hariri gave an overview on the activities of the SOC and the Syrian Interim Government in the liberated areas, stressing that the aim is to improve the conditions of Syrian civilians in those areas and improve essential services.
Al-Hariri talked about the Assad regime, its backers, and the PYD militias’ continued targeting of civilians in the liberated areas, stressing that the aim of these attacks is to destabilize the region and sow chaos.
He pointed out that the Assad regime still refuses to engage seriously in the political process that would lead to reaching a real political solution in accordance with the Geneva Communique of 2012 and UN Security Council Resolutions 2118 and 2254.
Moreover, Al-Hariri stressed the importance of social cohesion and cooperation amongst civil and revolutionary forces in order to improve the living conditions of the civilian population and beat off the upcoming challenges.
For their part, members of civil bodies raised questions and put forward proposals. They talked about the reality in the region and the difficulties facing their work, stressing that they are keen on enhancing communication and coordination with the SOC and the Syrian Interim Government in order to organize work and improve the essential services and living conditions in the region.
