The Syrian National Coalition said that the military operations being launched by the Assad regime and its backers against civilians in and around Idlib province are blatant war crimes.`
In a press release issued on Tuesday, the Coalition said that these crimes “came as part of the terrorist campaign the Assad regime and its allies have launched in Syria’s northwest for months.”
“We continue to communicate with the international parties in order to keep them updated on the latest developments on the ground as we stress the need for these parties to assume their responsibilities and put real pressure on the Assad regime and Russia to stop these crimes,” the Coalition said.
The Coalition went on to say that “the Assad regime and its allies’ escalating attacks against civilian areas in and around Idlib are blatant war crimes that came as part of a systematic plan to primarily target civilians.”
“The world is obliged to take swift action and stop the disaster that the regime and its allies are inflicting on the Syrian people.”
Towns and villages in Idlib, Aleppo, and Lattakia provinces have been subjected to escalating aerial bombardment and artillery shelling by the Assad regime and the Russian occupation forces. Russian jets on Tuesday bombed the village of Addar al-Kabira, killing three children and seriously wounding their mother. (Source: Syrian National Coalition’s Media Department)
