The Syrian National Coalition of said that the Assad regime has become a threat to Turkey and the region just as it is has long been a serious threat to Syria and its people.
In a press release issued on Friday, the Coalition stressed the Syrian National Army and the Turkish Army are fighting a common enemy with the aim of defending Syria and Turkey and their peoples. It said that “the blood of the fallen heroes of the Turkish army and our blood is one. Their loss is our loss. Their death will not go unavenged.”
“This cowardly regime would not have committed this heinous act without Russia’s permission and support given Russia’s proven track record of treachery and disrespect of all agreements and promises. Only the use of force can rein in the Assad regime,” added the Coalition.
The Coalition extended its heartfelt condolences to the brotherly Turkish people and to the families of the Turkish soldiers who were killed in a treacherous attack by the Assad regime and its Russian ally in Idlib province late on Thursday.
The Coalition called on the free world, with all its states and organizations, including NATO, to impose a no-fly zone in northern Syria and to stand with the Syrian National Army and Turkey by providing real support that would help end the bloodshed, protect civilians, ensure the return of refugees, spread peace in the region, and spare the region a disaster affecting everyone.
