The Syrian Coalition said that the mass forced displacement policy and the demographic change being pursued by the Assad regime and its allies are aimed at dividing Syria along ethnic and sectarian lines and finding a way out for Bashar al-Assad.
The Assad regime continues with attempts to force people out of their homes by imposing sieges on their cities and towns and bombing these areas, especially vital civilian centers and residential buildings.
President of the Syrian Coalition Anas Alabdah, head of the Coalition’s legal committee Haitham Almaleh, and members of the political committee met with head of the local council of Qudsaya Abu Mohammed and head of public relations in the town of Alhama Abed Alshami on Friday. The conferees discussed the deteriorating situation in the two Damascus suburbs as a result of the escalating attacks by the Assad regime and its allies. They also discussed the ongoing negotiation between the two towns and the Assad regime.
Abu Mohammed said that the Assad regime is seeking to force the residents of Qudsaya and Alhama out of their homes through threats and intimidation. Alshami noted that regime forces have lately escalated barrel bomb attacks and indiscriminate shelling on the two towns.
The Coalition’s legal committee on Thursday sent a memorandum to the Arab League and President of the UN Security Council calling for action against the mass forced displacement and demographic change pursued by the Assad regime. The memo stressed that such policies, which have caused humanitarian catastrophes in many parts across Syria, threaten the future and the unity of Syria. (Source: Syrian Coalition)
