The terrorist bombing that rocked the town of Ras al-Ayn on Thursday killed four members of the Syrian National Army and two Turkish soldiers, as well as wounded 14 others.
A car bombing targeted a checkpoint at the southern entrance to the town in northern rural al-Hasaka.
The bombing, along with a string of similar bombings, confirm the grave danger posed by the PYD terrorist militia and remnants of the Assad regime forces in the region.
These repeated attacks also confirm the need for all members of the Syrian National Army to remain in a state of high alert and ready to deal with such attacks. They also confirm the need for additional measures to eliminate terrorists and their sponsors; expand the liberated areas; and rid them of terrorism.
The Syrian Opposition Coalition offers its deepest condolences to the families of the victims and wishes the injured a speedy recovery. It calls on the international community to take firm stance towards terrorism and its sponsors without differentiating between the types of terrorism and its sponsors. The SOC also reasserts the need to support the Syrian National Army and the institutions of the Syrian Interim Government in order to enable them to confront these terrorist organizations and those behind them; cut off their sources of funding; ensure they are dismantled; and end their threat against civilians.
