The Syrian Coalition hailed the steadfastness of the Free Syrian Army fighters in the face of the military operations being launched by the Assad regime and Russia since April 26. It stressed that the stiff resistance being put up by the FSA has a major role in the political solution and the course of the revolution as well as in meeting the Syrian people’s demands for freedom and dignity.
In a press release issued on Friday, the Coalition said that the Free Syrian Army fighters made new achievement on the ground by preventing the Assad regime’s forces and their allied terrorist militias from achieving any progress in northern rural Hama.
“The FSA fighters have proved their ability to impose a firm deterring equation in the face of the strategy of the bloody solution being pursued by the Assad regime and its allies and the other parties seeking to break the will of the Syrian people,” the Coalition said.
“The FSA groups have reinforced their positions in the strategic Hammamyat hilltop in northwestern rural Hama. Over the past few hours, they have fended off multiple counterattacks by the Assad regime and the Iranian militias to recapture the hill using various types of weaponry. They have also inflicted heavy losses on the attacking forces.”
The Coalition stressed the important role of the FSA which is not limited to protecting civilians and preventing the regime and its allies from achieving their plans.
“The FSA role goes beyond that to have a real impact on the course of the revolution, especially with regards to reasserting the need for a political solution as the only way forward.” (Source: Syrian Coalition’s Media Department)
