The Syrian Coalition calls on the UN Security Council to pass a resolution under Chapter VII of the UN Charter so becomes a real obligation for the Assad regime and imposes a fair solution which includes immediate steps to ensure the protection of civilians in Syria in accordance with international law.”
Spokesman for the Syrian Coalition Salem al-Meslet said that “we reaffirm our commitment to finding a political solution provided that it is comprehensive and one that meets the demands of the Syrian revolution and ensures stopping the Assad regime’s killing machine.
“The Assad regime continues to violate truces and agreements held with rebels in many areas across Syria, even those sponsored by international bodies, like what happened in Al Waer district in Homs when regime forces opened fire on convoys of the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) as they were evacuating civilians,” Meslet said.
Meslet added that “in conjunction with the announcement of the UN envoy to Syria Staffan de Mistura that the Assad regime is willing to stop the bombardment of Aleppo for six weeks, regime forces backed by Iranian and Hezbollah militiamen launched a large-scale offensive in rural Aleppo in parallel with a similar campaign in rebel-held areas in Dara’a province.”
“The large-scale successive regime offensives and the war crime that accompany then prove beyond doubt that the Assad regime cannot be trusted as a partner in any political solution,” Meslet stressed. (Source: Syrian Coalition)
