The Syrian Opposition Coalition (SOC) and Syrian Interim Government (SIG) held an event at the Cultural Center in the town of Azaz in rural Aleppo to mark on the fifth anniversary of the Russian aggression on Syria.
Participants included Coordinator of the SOC’s Office in rural Aleppo, Ahmed Al-Shehadi, member of the political committee, Yasser Al-Farhan, and Minister of Justice, Abdullah Abd Al-Salam, revolutionary and civil bodies, SIG’s institutions, local councils, and syndicates.
Participants stressed that Russia has sided with the Assad regime against the Syrian people’s aspirations for freedom and dignity and has sought to shield the Assad regime at the UN Security Council by using its veto power in sixteen occasions.
They reaffirmed commitment to the aspirations of the Syrian people and to confronting the Russian aggression.
They also held signs denouncing the Russian aggression against Syria and calling on the world community to take serious action to stop that aggression and protect the Syrian people. (Source: SOC’s Media Department)
