President of the Syrian Negotiations Commission, Anas Abdah, toured several IDPs camps in northern Syria and met with their residents. He pointed out that despite the tragic conditions in which the IDPs are living, they insist on regaining their right to life, freedom, dignity, and getting rid of the murderous Assad regime.
“The conditions in these camps are extremely terrible. IDPs live in tents in the open, suffering severe cold amid a complete lack of the most basic necessities of life. Children need to go to schools. They need life. They have been enduring all this cruel injustice for no reason other than demanding freedom, dignity and a decent life,” Abdah said.
Abdah denounced the international silence about the suffering of the IDPs, calling on the international community and the UN envoy to visit the IDPs camps in order to recognize the scale of the tragedy brought on them by the Assad regime by disrupting efforts to reach a political solution.
Moreover, Abdah stressed that the Security Council is required to establish an effective mechanism to push the political process forward and exert real pressure in order to establish a political transition that fulfills the legitimate demands of the Syrian people for freedom, democracy and dignified life.
He also met with local civil activists and dignitaries in rural Aleppo as he reaffirmed commitment to the goals of the revolution and his firm belief in the inevitability of victory. They discussed the living conditions, the basic needs of the people in northern Syria, and ways to improve services. Abdah and Head of the Syrian Interim Government Abdurrahman Mustafa opened Shammarin Hospital in rural Aleppo, which would improve health services and provide specialized healthcare for the civilian population, especially in orthopedic surgery and cardiac diseases.
