The Syrian Coalition wishes the Assyrians in Syria, and indeed all those who celebrate around the world, a healthy and prosperous new year. The Assyrian community in Syria has suffered under the tyranny of the Assad family rule as has any other segment of the Syrian society.
As the Assyrians celebrate this spring festival, which is also known as “Akitu,” the hope of the Syrian people of all backgrounds is renewed; the hope of a new Syria, a Syria free from Assad; where all citizens are equal under the law, regardless of ethnicity, gender, political affiliation, or religion.
May our wounded recover, our detainees be free, and our fallen heroes rest in peace.
Long live Syria and its people, free and with honor.
