Terrorists carried out twin car bombings in the town of Afrin in northern rural Aleppo on Wednesday (27 June), resulting in the death and injury of many civilians, including women and children.
The sole aim of such terrorist acts is only to spread terror, panic and chaos. However, these attacks, along with all plans that contradict the will of the Syrian people and seek to break their will, will fail to achieve their goals. Terrorism and tyranny will not achieve their goals.
This crime cannot be viewed independently from other crimes taking place in other parts of Syria, most notably the ongoing assault being launched by the Assad regime’s forces and their allies on large areas of southern Syria. Such attacks serve as a further proof of the close relationship among all active terrorist forces in Syria and their organic relationship with the Assad regime.
The Syrian Coalition reiterates that the Assad regime is the root cause of terror and its source. Absent firm decisions to dry up this source, terrorism will continue to spread in the region and beyond.
