The Syrian National Coalition decried the international silence towards Russia’s continued shedding of the blood of innocent civilians as well as its insistence on perpetuating chaos, violating international resolutions and understandings, and committing war crimes and crimes against humanity in Syria.
In a press release issued on Wednesday, the Coalition stressed the importance of supporting the Syrian National Army to enable it to protect civilians in Syria and fend off the terrorism and aggression against them as essential to creating the appropriate conditions for the resumption of the political process.
“It is imperative that the international community and the major actors reconsider their positions and options towards the current situation and as well as reassess the consequences that will ensue should this barbaric onslaught continues unchecked,” said the Coalition.
The Coalition called on the international community and the major actors to ensure immediate, effective protection for Idlib and its countryside and to work to put an end to the atrocious crimes the Russian occupation and Iranian militias are committing against the Syrian people.
Aerial bombardment by the Russian occupation jets and Assad regime helicopters killed 22 civilians and injured about 90 others in the past few hours. Dozens of airstrikes, shelling with heavy artillery and rockets carrying cluster munitions hit Idlib province. (Source: Syrian National Coalition’s Media Department)
