The Syrian Coalition said that the horrific massacres the Assad regime and Russia have recently committed in Aleppo represent a coup de grace to the truce, stressing that the regime’s and Russia’s intensifying brutal attacks on Aleppo constitute a war crime.
During an ongoing meeting of the Syrian Coalition’s General Assembly, vice-president of the Coalition Muwaffaq Nyrabiya said that the UN envoy to Syria Staffan de Mistura warned that the cessation of hostilities agreement is in “grave peril” in his latest briefing to the UN Security Council. De Mistura also said that the agreement needs to be “revitalized” before the launch of a new round of negotiations.
Nyrabiya asked how it was possible to “talk about any political approach to resolving the conflict amidst these barbaric, systematic crimes against the Syrian people?”
“The international community should realize that the silence on such massacres and violations constitutes complicity in these crimes,” Nyrabiya added. “The international community has to bear the consequences of its silence as such silence directly caused the emergence of ISIS; contributed to the spread of terrorism in the world; exacerbated the refugee crises; impeded a political solution and encouraged the murderous Assad regime to carry on with committing the most heinous massacres in modern history.” (Source: Syrian Coalition)
