Vice-President of the Syrian Coalition Nagham al-Ghadiri said that “we are deeply concerned about reports of ISIS’s offensive on the town of Ras al-Ayn,” signaling arms of possible atrocities that ISIS may commit against the residents of the town.
“As ISIS have already appalled the world with their barbarity, there is no need to wait for new examples of what inaction can result if more towns fall to ISIS. The consequences have always been and will continue to be disastrous for civilians and will further jeopardize chances of reaching a political settlement to the conflict.” Ghadiri added.
She also said that ISIS is still capable of launching new attacks in Syria unaffected by the international coalition’s air strikes against its positions. ISIS militants have reached the village of Um al-Assafir on the way to Ras al-Ayn-Tal Tamr road, and have taken control of the nearby towns of Al Rsam and Tal Nasri. (Source: Syrian Coalition)
