The Syrian Coalition condemned the terrorist bombings that targeted civilians in Damascus on Wednesday, stressing that the Assad regime and the Iranian-backed militias stand behind these attacks.
In a press release issued on Thursday, the Coalition stressed that the attacks were “part of attempts by the Assad regime to put increasing pressure on the Syrian people, particularly residents of Damascus, by terrorizing them into leaving their homes to replace them with Iranian mercenaries.”
“These attacks are just another tactic employed by the regime to change the demographic landscape in key areas across Syria,” the Coalition added.
“Judges, lawyers, and civilians killed in attacks on the ‘Palace of Justice’ building and a restaurant in central Damascus are among the hundreds of thousands of victims of the Assad regime.”
The Assad regime has an infamous track record of orchestrating terrorist bombings and assassinations of officials and diplomats, most notably the assassination of former Lebanese Prime Minister Rafik Hariri back in 2005. Moreover, it is vital to remember that investigations proved the involvement of the Assad regime in the transfer of explosives from Syria to Lebanon through former Lebanese Minister of Information Michel Samaha to carry out terrorist operations in the country.
