Vice President Mustafa Osso said that Assad’s survival in power threatens Syrian civilization, its past and future, referring to the Assad regime’s demolishing parts of the 13th century Aleppo Citadel wall. The citadel is included on the list of World Heritage sites by the UNESCO.
Osso calls on the United Nations to assume legal responsibilities towards the Syrian civilians and the Syrian state, its resources and its culture.
“For Assad and his henchmen, Syria is but fuel for their machine, and he is ready to burn its present, its past and future for the sake of holding to the throne.
“These crimes and violations are consistent with the systematic criminality, destruction and disregard for any humanitarian or cultural value and reveal that Assad’s’ survival in power is a fateful threat to Syria, its people and civilization.” (Source: Syrian Coalition)
