The Syrian Negotiations Commission accused the Assad regime of assassinating Mounir Darwish, one of its members as it called on the UN and human rights organizations to conduct an international investigation into the incident.
The Commission said in a statement that Darwish was hit by a car in front of his house in Damascus on Friday evening and was liquidated while he was being hospitalized.
The Commission offered condolences to Darwish’s family as it called on international bodies, particularly the United Nations and human rights organizations, to conduct a transparent investigation into the assassination of Darwish.
The Commission reaffirmed is firm commitment to “our steadfast people inside Syria and in the diaspora” as it stressed it would follow in the footsteps of “our fallen heroes in the struggle to achieve the objectives of the Syrian people in freedom and dignity.”
“We hold the tyrannical Assad regime Darwish responsible for the death of Darwish,” the Commission added. It called on the Syrian people to “carry on with the struggle to establish a free, safe and democratic country where there is no place for the criminal Assad regime which brought destruction and occupation to Syria.”
