Vice-President Hisham Marwa hails the “heroic fight put up by the FSA against the regime’s terror and the Iranian invasion of Syria, especially in Dara’a, Eastern Ghouta and Aleppo.”
“The FSA fighters have repelled successive attacks led by the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps in Dara’a, northern Aleppo and Eastern Ghouta over the past few days and killed and captured hundreds of the invading forces. Motivated by unshakeable faith in the cause they fight for, they have demonstrated tremendous courage and steely determination though they are under-resourced and outgunned,” Marwa added.
“The Assad regime and its allies know only the language of deceit and treachery. Over the past four years they destroyed the infrastructure of most Syrian cities, displaced its people and killed over 300,000 civilians. Moreover, while the Assad regime declares its willingness to temporarily stop the bombardment of Aleppo, it is amassing its troops on the northern outskirts of Aleppo in an attempt to encircle it.”
Moreover, Marwa said that “Iran does not shy away from announcing that its Revolutionary Guard Corps is spearheading most of the attacks on rebel-held areas, which represent a blatant occupation and invasion of Syria, and a flagrant violation of international conventions and norms.”
Marwa calls upon the UN Security Council to issue a binding resolution forcing the Iranian regime to withdraw its military forces from all Syrian territory, stressing that prospects for a political solution in Syria will remain absent as long as Iran continues to occupy parts of Syria.” (Source: Syrian Coalition)
