The Syrian Opposition Coalition’s (SOC) South Committee on Tuesday convened to discuss the situation in the southern region, especially Iran’s growing influence. In attendance was SOC’ Vice-president, Oqab Yahya, and members of the Committee.
Participants thoroughly discussed the latest developments in the southern region which covers the provinces of Swaida, Dara’a, and Quneitra, especially attempts by Iran, Hezbollah, and the Assad regime to sow strife amongst the people of the region.
They also discussed the dire living conditions in the southern region and the lack of access to humanitarian and relief aid, especially after the suspension of the delivery of aid from Jordan.
They also discussed the situation in Al-Jazira and Euphrates region as they emphasized that it is an integral part of the Syrian territory. They also affirmed their full support for the rights of the indigenous people to manage their areas by themselves and for the popular movement in the region.
The Committee put forward a set of recommendations to be referred to international organizations in order to secure humanitarian and relief aid, especially in light of the spread of the coronavirus.
