Civilians in the Syrian Desert region, who live in dire conditions in camps as well as fighters of the Free Syrian Army have been receiving constant threats that they will be bombed by the Russian and Assad regime’s air forces. They have also been subjected to continuing attacks by the terrorist Iranian militia.
Civilians and the FSA fighters are also being subjected to increasing pressure to leave the area. However, fighters of Usoud Alsharqiya and Ahmed Alabdo FSA groups insist that would continue to confront the mercenaries of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard and ISIS as well as to protect civilians in the area, who were mostly displaced as a result of Assad’s crimes.
The Syrian Coalition calls on the international anti-ISIS coalition to provide the necessary protection for civilians and the FSA groups operating in the Syrian Desert. The Coalition stresses the need for the ceasefire to cover all the area and for stopping the threats being made by the Russian forces. The Coalition also calls for enabling the FSA fighters to confront all terrorist militias in the area.
The Coalition commends the efforts being made by the brothers in Jordan to deliver humanitarian aid to civilians in the Syrian Desert and to provide them with the necessities of a decent life. The Coalition reasserts the strong ties between the Syrian and Jordanian peoples and its keenness to strengthen these ties. The Coalition commends Jordan’s constructive efforts to meet the aspirations of the Syrian people for freedom, dignity, and justice.
