Secretary-General of the Syrian Coalition Abdul Ilah al-Fahd sent a letter of condolence to the Civil Defense Corps in Aleppo following the death of five rescue workers in airstrikes by the Russian and regime forces on a center for the group in the town of Al-Atareb on Monday.
“We were deeply shocked and saddened to hear of the death of five of the finest volunteering rescue workers in the Civil Defense Corps in Al-Atareb,” Fahd said. He added that “the Syrian people highly appreciate the bravery and the daily heroic deeds of the civil defense workers to rescue civilians in the ongoing brutal war the Assad regime has waged against our people and our country for over five years.”
On behalf of the Syrian Coalition, Fahd extended the most sincere condolences to the families and friends of the victims, expressing hope that their death will only strengthen the Syrian people’s determination to continue with the revolution.
Fahd concluded his letter by saying that “our struggle for freedom and justice will continue. Criminals and those with blood on their hands will not be able to get away with their crimes.” (Source: Syrian Coalition)
