A sit-in was organized in the Swedish capital, Stockholm, on Sunday to protest against the crimes committed by Russia and the Assad regime in Syria. Protestors held placards denouncing the continued Russian and Assad regime’s airstrikes which have killed hundreds of thousands of civilians, many of them women and children.
The sit-in was organized by the Association of Social Conservative Democrats in Sweden and the Syria- Swedish Union in front of the Russian embassy in Stockholm.
Moments after signing off on the Munich truce agreement on Friday, the Russian air force escalated air raids on Syria, the most violent of which hit rebel-held areas in Homs, Aleppo, Latakia and Dara’a provinces. The strikes caused a horrible massacre which claimed the lives of 16 civilians in the town of Al-Ghantou north of Homs on Friday morning.
The Syrian Coalition said that these attacks represented a “a clear indication of how Russia perceives the Munich ‘truce’ agreement.” It stressed that the Russian bombardment is designed to prop up the Assad regime and its allied foreign militias as well as to force more civilians out of their homes into Turkey and Europe.
