The Syrian Opposition Coalition’s (SOC) political committee held its regular meeting on Thursday, headed by Nasr Al-Hariri, to discuss the latest on the ground and political developments and follow up the work of the SOC’s departments, offices, and committees.
The committee focused on the results of the tour made by President Al-Hariri and his accompanying delegation to the liberated areas where they met with officials in service institutions, commanders of the Syrian National Army, and representatives of revolutionary bodies.
Al-Hariri talked about the visit to the Military Court and the Ma’arat prison in Afrin to check up on the progress of their work and make sure they abide by international standards and human rights. He stressed that the prison is seen as a corrective rather than a punitive measure, adding that the prison administration provides books, gyms and places where prisoners can practice hobbies.
He pointed out that the tour included opening three offices concerned with the affairs of women, the youth and human rights, adding that more offices will be opened to strengthen communication and coordination with the Syrian people.
The committee also discussed developing a political vision as they talked about the discussions with various Syrian political parties and currents, stressing the need to carry on with these discussions and approve them in the near future.
Participants in the meeting touched on the SOC’s communication with Syrian students who earned top grades in the host countries. They discussed opportunities to secure scholarships for those students so as to enable them to complete their studies in European and Turkish universities.
They focused on the dire conditions in al-Rukban refugee camp and discussed ways to provide humanitarian aid to the camp’s residents, especially in the areas of health and relief aid. (Source: SOC’s Media Department)
