The Interim Ministry of Defense calls on the UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon to break his silence over the Assad regime’s systematic crimes against the Syrian people.
Interim Defense Minister Salim Idris, who made the televised statement, said that Zabadani is coming under an external invasion carried out by Iranian-backed terrorist forces, calling on the UN Security Council to shoulder its legal responsibilities to put an end to the intervention of the Iranian-backed extremist militias.
Idris also said the onslaught on Zabadani is accompanied by intense air raids and barrel bombing, adding that so far over 600 barrel bombs and 300 rockets have hit the town and its surroundings.
Idris pointed out that the regime’s onslaught on Zabadani comes in conjunction with a suffocating siege on rebel fighters in the hope of achieving victory to cover up its defeats in northern and southern Syria.
He calls on all friends and brothers of the Syrian people to provide all kinds of aid to Zabadani and other parts of Syria through the Syrian Coalition and the Interim government. He also calls on rebel factions on all fronts to step military operations against regime forces to ease pressure on Zabadani.
Idris stresses that rebel fighters in Zabadani and all fronts in Syria are putting up heroic fight against regime forces even though they are outgunned and under-equipped, emphasizing that the revolution for freedom and dignity will continue until all Syria is liberated from oppression and tyranny.
