Press Statement Original in arabic
November 29, 2016
The Assad regime committed earlier today a horrific massacre in the neighborhood of Bab Alnairab claiming the lives of 25 civilians, mostly women and children. The victims were hit by airstrikes while trying to escape the eastern neighborhoods on foot.
The massacre came amid complete international silence over the brutal onslaught by the Assad regime as well as its Russian and Iranian allies on the besieged eastern Aleppo where hundreds of civilians have been killed over the past few days in deliberate bombardment on residential areas.
The Syrian Coalition condemns this heinous crime and holds the international community responsible as it has so far failed to take action to protect civilians or stop the onslaught on Aleppo.
The Coalition highly commends the steadfastness and courage being shown by civilians, members of the civil defense, and FSA fighters in Aleppo who have not spared any effort to repel the aggression by the Assad regime and Russia on their city.
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.
