The Syrian Coalition condemns the attacks being carried out by Hay’at Tahrir Alsham (HTS) against civilians as well as its harassment and prosecution of civilians. It also condemns HTS killing of unarmed persons.
The Coalition reiterates condemnation of attacks on any of the rebel groups by extremist groups. The Coalition stresses that any group involved in infighting and that directs its weapons against unarmed civilians in denunciation of the principles and aspirations of the Syrian people cannot be a part of the Syrian revolution but stands on the side of the Assad regime and its backers.
The Coalition stresses the need for all the Free Syrian Army groups to unify against extremist forces and reject any orientations or ideas that contradict the principles of the Syrian revolution and the rights of the Syrian people to freedom, justice, and dignity. All efforts need also to be unified to confront the crimes of the Assad regime, the foreign occupation forces, and the terrorist militias supporting them.
