Members of the Syrian Coalition’s political committee discussed the latest field and humanitarian developments in the Houla plain area in rural Homs.
The discussions took place during a teleconference with the Unified Local Council in the Houla area on Friday. The meeting came as part of the reform program and plans developed by the new leadership of the Coalition headed by President Riad Seif to follow-up on the situation on the ground in the liberated areas.
The two sides discussed the situation on the ground in Houla and the impact of the siege the Assad regime imposes on the FSA-held area, especially the deteriorating educational and humanitarian situation.
Members of the Council said that regime continues to bomb civilians in the area. They pointed to a decline in airstrikes on the area following the signing of the “de-escalation zones” agreement but stressed that regime forces continue to shell the area with artillery and heavy machine guns.
The members praised the positions of the Syrian Coalition as they reaffirmed full support for its political stance as well as for representing the Syrian people on the international level as the body seeking to achieve their aspirations and the goals of the revolution.
For their part, members of the political committee stressed that the Coalition will spare no effort to help the Council overcome the difficulties and challenges facing it. Efforts will be coordinated with the Syrian Interim Government (SIG) and Homs provincial council to alleviate the suffering of civilians in the area, they added.
