The Syrian Coalition called upon the international community to take serious action to put an end to the Assad regime and its allies’ crimes and salvage the political process in accordance with international resolutions and the Geneva Communiqué of 2012.
In a press release issued on Monday, the Coalition said that the Assad regime and its allies’ ongoing crimes against the Syrian people indicate that it “rejects any solution that deals with the core of the conflict, namely freedom from enslavement. It has become clear that as long as it receives support from its allies at the military and diplomatic level, the Assad regime will not take a single step on the path of political transition.”
According to the Media Center in the Damascus suburb of eastern Ghouta, at least 28 people were killed and more than 100 others wounded Sunday in more than 30 airstrikes by the Assad regime’s air force. Regime forces also fired more than 50 rockets and mortar shells targeting residential areas in the besieged eastern Ghouta.
Accordion to figures the center published on its Facebook page, the victims included 17 people who were killed in the town of Hammouriya as a result of the relentless bombing campaign being launched by the Assad regime on the rebel-held area.
“No one can expect criminals to contribute to the success of a solution that might put an end to their crimes. Therefore, the international community is obliged to press towards putting an end to the bloodshed and the criminal policies that the Assad regime has been pursuing since day one,” the Coalition added.
The Coalition went on to say that the main objective of the Assad regime’s criminal attacks and its violation of agreements, understandings and ceasefires is to undermine all chances of reaching a political solution.
“The Assad regime exploits the international community’s complete silence about the dozens of crimes committed in recent weeks as well as the ones that have been committed against the Syrian people over the past seven years. (Source: Syrian Coalition’s Media Department)
