The Syrian Coalition called on the International Syria Support Group (ISSG) to hold a meeting to force the Assad regime to implement Articles 12 and 13 of the UN Security Council resolution 2254 concerning the improvement of the humanitarian situation in Syria.
The Coalition also called on the ISSG to develop mechanisms in order to hold violators of the truce to account.
In a meeting with ISSG representatives for development and the economy in the Turkish city of Gaziantep on Tuesday, the Coalition’s president Anas al-Abdah said that the revolution’s political and military forces expect a serious response by the international community towards the Assad regime’s daily violations of the truce.
Abda pointed out that the political process in Geneva is now at stake, adding that the Assad regime continues to bomb civilians, refuses to lift the blockades on the besieges areas, hinder the delivery of humanitarian aid and refuses to release detainees.
Abda said that the Syrian people now feel they have been abandoned by the international community whose response to the political process and humanitarian situation in Syria has fallen short of meeting the Syrian people’s needs.
Abdah stressed the need for supporting the Syrian interim government and the Assistance Coordination Unit (ACU) as the executive branches of the Coalition. He added that these two bodies are under restructuring with the aim to increase efficiency to better serve the Syrian people. (Source: Syrian Coalition)
