The Syrian Opposition Coalition (SOC) mourns the free writer and journalist Abdul Razzaq Diab who passed away in Egypt on Wednesday at the age of 54. We extend our deepest condolences to the Syrian people and to Diab’s family, relatives and friends, asking Allah to have mercy on him and forgive him.
The death of Diab is a loss for the Syrian intellectual elites revolting against the Assad regime as his works were rich with revolutionary intellectual creativity. Diab wrote hundreds of journalistic articles in which he battled the Assad regime’s tyranny, injustice and crimes from 2011 until his death. He also produced the short film ‘the Golan Heights: A Fish Bone’ which talks about the Assad regime’s selling of the Golan Heights and the suffering of the displaced people.
May Allah have mercy and forgiveness on Diab and all the fallen heroes of Syria.
We belong to Allah and to Him we shall return.
