The Syrian people have suffered for years from the scourge of the ISIS terrorist group. There will be no place for this group, its members or sympathizers, or its subversive agendas or ideas which have served the Assad regime and fought the revolution forces for a long time. The same applies to all other terrorist organizations along with their slogans and symbols.
The Syrian Opposition Coalition (SOC) stresses that the use of the symbols of terrorist organizations is a crime against the Syrian people. Respect of the law and preventing attempts to derail the civil and revolutionary movement is the duty of the revolution and the official institutions representing the Syrian people and the executive authorities affiliated with them.
The SOC underscores that celebrating terrorist symbols is a promotion of terrorism and a violation of the values and principles of the Syrian people, let alone representing a violation of the principles of the revolution.
The SOC renews its outright rejection of all forms of terrorism as it stresses that there cannot be acceptable terrorism and unacceptable one. Terrorist organizations are the enemy of the Syrian people. There will be no place among us also for the other terrorist organizations affiliated with the PKK militia, which are seeking to exploit such rare incidents and employ them to discredit the Syrians revolution.
