President of the Syrian Opposition Coalition (SOC), Nasr Al-Hariri, on Monday held an emergency meeting with coordinators of departments, offices and committees to check up on their work in light of the challenges facing the Syrian revolution and the complex political developments in the region.
Participants in the meeting focused on the issue of relief aid for Syrian refugees in Lebanon in the wake of the Beirut explosion as well as the impact on Syrian refugee, whether in terms of the economic impact affecting the refugees or the physical damage.
They stressed the need to work with the Lebanese government, international humanitarian organizations, and countries that have launched humanitarian action in Lebanon. They also stressed the importance of carrying on with investigations to ensure the rights of victims and ensure treatment for the injured.
Tabled for discussion was the dangerous decision issued by the PYD militia regarding the absentees’ property aimed at legitimating the theft of the property of the IDP and expatriates. They pointed out that this law bears the earmarks of Law No. 10 issued earlier by the Assad regime and the law issued by the Israeli occupation in 1950 leading to stripping the Palestinian people of their right to property.
Participants in the meeting expressed their outright rejection of this law as an attempt to legitimize the seizure of the property of the local population.
They also discussed international discussions to extend the arms embargo on Iran, making it clear that the Syrian people are the victims of Iranian terrorist arms in the region, most notably the Assad regime, the Iranian Revolutionary Guard, and the Hezbollah militia.
Moreover, they emphasized the need for the international community to confront Iran and its arms in the region; rein in its influence; disarm all the Iranian-backed militias; and hold it responsible for threatening and the security and stability of the countries of the region.
