The Syrian Coalition announced it fully rejects the withdrawal of Free Syrian Army groups from the Syrian Desert as it condemned all deals being reached at the expense of the struggle of the Syrian people and their legitimate aspirations.
In a press release issued on Friday, the Coalition said that it “fully rejects the withdrawal of forces known for their bravery to outside the Syrian territory at a time when ISIS militants are moving freely in different directions on the Syrian territory right under the nose of the world and the watchful satellites of major countries.”
The Coalition condemned “all deals being reached at the expense of the struggle of the Syrian people and their legitimate aspirations for freedom and their right to fight the murderous Assad regime and the ISIS terrorist group.”
The Coalition pointed out that it had recently met with representatives of the two Coalition-affiliated groups and consulted with them on the steps to be taken to stop these measures. It also said it had contacted officials of the US administration in charge of the Syrian file as well as with many friendly parties and FSA groups. The Coalition noted that it continued its consultations with the brothers in Jordan and the supporting parties on behalf of the two FSA groups to warn of the consequences and implications of this move.
“The history of Ahmad Al-Abdu and Ussoud Al-Sharqiya Free Syrian Army groups testifies to their distinguished performance in confronting the terrorist Assad regime and ISIS. The two groups lost many fighters in battles across Syria,” the Coalition stressed.
“In addition to being inconceivable, it is feared that the move is part of an arrangement or deal with Russia and the murderous regime with regards to the Syrian Desert to end the presence of the Free Syrian Army in the area.” (Source: Syrian Coalition’s Media Department)
