Assad’s thugs planted two car bombs today in the area of the Usama Bin Zaid Mosque in Wadi Barada, near the capital Damascus. At least 33 people died and dozens were injured, as the car bombs exploded while people were leaving the mosque at the end of Friday prayers.
The Syrian Coalition condemns this heinous crime and denounces the position of the international community that allows Assad to continue to commit massacres against the Syrian people. The Coalition calls on the United Nations Human Rights Council to document this crime, as well as previous Assad crimes against the Syrian people, and urges it to take necessary measures to ensure Assad and his corrupt clique are held accountable.
Assad’s continued massacring of the Syrian people makes it a moral obligation for countries of the free world, member of the Friends of Syria, and international human rights organizations to assume their responsibilities towards civilians in Syria. Syrian lives must be saved and their rights preserved, and those responsible for crimes against them must be brought to justice.
We ask for Mercy for our martyrs, health for our wounded, and freedom for our detainees.
Long live Syria and its people, free and with honor.
