A Syrian activist on Sunday arrived in the Dutch capital of Amsterdam coming from the German capital of Berlin to deliver letters to Amnesty International watchdog organization about the plight of Syrian detainees as well as the continued bombardment on the provinces of Raqqa and Deir Ezzor.
Activist Moro Al-Ali told Smart News Network that the purpose of his seven-day bike ride is to hand over two letters to Amnesty International. The first letter urges the human rights organization to open the file of Syrian detainees in the prisons of the Assad forces, Jabhat Alnusra, and ISIS.
The second letter aims to draw the attention of the watchdog organization to the intensive bombing campaign on Deir Ezzr and Raqqa provinces in eastern Syria which is being launched under the pretext fighting the ISIS extremist group.
Al-Ali accused the international anti-ISIS coalition, the Assad regime forces, the militia of the so-called Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) and the Iraqi Popular Mobilization Forces of committing “genocide against civilians” in the two Syrian provinces.
The arrival of al-Ali in Amsterdam has coincided with a sit-in by dozens of Syrian refugees and Dutch citizens to mark the 4th anniversary of the Ghouta massacre which was committed by the Assad regime forces in the eastern Ghouta near Damascus four years ago today. The massacre claimed lives of hundreds of civilians who were gassed to death by the sarin nerve agent in their sleep on August 21, 2013. (Source: Syrian Coalition’s Media Department)
