The Syrian Coalition condemned the aerial bombardment that the Assad regime and Russia carried out in rural Idlib, Aleppo and Hama on Friday as it blamed Moscow full responsibility.
Activists confirmed that the bombardment, which involved the use of the white phosphorus, killed at least eight civilians and injured many others as well as caused massive destruction to residential buildings.
The Coalition warned the international community of the dire consequences of giving the Assad regime, Russia and the Iranian militias a free hand against civilians in Idlib, Hama and Aleppo. It also warned of the danger of exploiting the blood and lives of civilians on the political solution.
“Recent developments require urgent international intervention to put an end to these heinous attacks and the ongoing crimes and violations of the international resolutions on cease-fire and the ‘de-escalation zones’ agreements. The fate of hundreds of thousands of civilians is in serious danger as the consequences of these terrorist attacks will be unprecedented.”
The Syrian Coalition called upon the UN Security Council to take immediate action and adopt a resolution directed at Russia to condemn its crimes against the Syrian people. “Appropriate measures needs to urgently taken to put an end to the war crimes Russia is committing, sponsoring or seeking to cover up, including the crimes involving the use of chemical weapons.”
It also called upon the UN Security Council to ensure accountability for the crimes Russia, the Assad regime, and the Iranian militias are committing against Syrian civilians as well as for everyone who is responsible for crimes against the Syrian people.
