The Syrian Coalition retreaters calls on the UN Security Council and the Arab League to seriously deal with the Iranian military intervention in Syria, citing the presence of thousands of Iranian militias fighting alongside Assad’s forces in Dara’a, Aleppo, Eastern Ghouta and Qalamoun.
“We welcome the proposal made by the Deputy Secretary General of the Arab League, Ahmed Ben Helli today about the formation of a joint Arab force to contribute to the preserving of the Arab national security. We hope that the Iranian intervention in Syria will top the discussions at the Arab summit to be held on March 28.”
Spokesman for the Syrian Coalition Salem al-Meslet said that “we have already called on the UN Security Council and the Arab League to pass a resolution forcing the Iranian regime to stop violating Syria’s sovereignty. From the very beginning of the Syrian revolution we have called on the Arab League to take on its duties and respond to the situation in Syria.”
Meslet points out that the Iranian military intervention in Syria has grown to include all the region. “Iran is now expanding its influence in the Arab region and seeks to serve its own interests, leaving leaving in every conflict zone militias and cantons that are far from a national project. This expansionist project in the region, especially in Lebanon, Syria, Iraq and Yemen, can only be stopped only through an Arabic project capable of protecting national security common Arab interests.” (Source: Syrian Coalition)
