The Political Committee of the Syrian Opposition Coalition (SOC) convened its regular meeting on Wednesday and Thursday, under the leadership of SOC’s President Salem Al-Meslet. The meeting focused on exploring the available options for the Syrian revolution and opposition forces in light of Arab countries’ normalization with the Assad regime. Additionally, the committee addressed the situation of Syrian refugees in Lebanon and expressed concern over the Lebanese government’s intention to hand over Syrian opponents to the Assad regime.
The committee thoroughly reviewed the reports from various SOC offices, departments, and committees, as well as assessed the conditions in the liberated areas and the efforts of the Syrian Interim Government to improve living standards, security, and stability in those regions.
Regarding the eleventh anniversary of the Houla Massacre in Homs, where numerous individuals, including women and children, were brutally killed by Assad’s forces using knives, the political committee emphasized the imperative of holding the perpetrators accountable. This accountability is seen as crucial for the implementation of UN resolutions on Syria, particularly the 2012 Geneva Communique, as well as Resolutions 2118 and 2254.
The participants emphasized the need for continued international engagement to prevent any attempts at rehabilitating the Assad regime and circumventing international resolutions. They emphasized their commitment to ensuring that the sacrifices of the Syrian people and their struggle for freedom, dignity, and democracy are not overlooked or disregarded.
