Munther Sarras, a member of the political committee of the Syrian Opposition Coalition (SOC), has voiced his concern over the ongoing attacks by the Assad regime and Russia in the rural areas of Idlib and Aleppo. He emphasized that these attacks are causing destabilization, insecurity, and are preventing residents from going about their daily lives, leaving them in a perpetual state of anxiety and displacement.
On Wednesday, Sarras highlighted that the repeated attacks by the Assad regime and Russia are compelling people to flee their homes. These assaults also hinder farmers from tending to their lands and harvesting their crops, further worsening the economic conditions for the affected population.
Sarras additionally pointed out that these acts of violence have a detrimental impact on the educational process, as they prevent children from attending school and intentionally target educational facilities, local markets, and vital infrastructure such as water and electricity stations.
He stressed the imperative need for the international community to put an end to the ongoing attacks by the regime and Russia. Sarras called for holding the regime and Russia accountable for their actions and avoiding a state of impunity.
Sarras also emphasized the necessity of the international community taking a resolute stance to halt the loss of Syrian lives, facilitate a political transition in line with UN Security Council Resolution 2254, enable the return of displaced individuals to their homes, and initiate the prosecution of those responsible for war crimes and crimes against humanity.
