The Syrian Coalition condemns all crimes and executions carried out by the Iranian regime against Iranian dissidents demanding their rights and struggling for their freedom. It especially condemns the shelling that targeted the headquarters of the Kurdistan Democratic Party in the Iraq Kurdistan Region killing dozens of civilians and displaced people as well as the execution of peaceful activists.
These crimes are part of the Iranian regime’s policies aimed at spreading terrorism and which are based on hostility towards peoples of the region, including the Iranian people. The Iranian regime is seeking to create chaos and using terrorism to suppress freedoms and liquidate dissidents with the sole aim of maintaining its monopoly of power and wealth in the country.
The Syrian Coalition renews its warning of the destructive policies being pursued by the Iranian regime as they risk leading the region to potential disaster. It stresses the need to confront these policies by taking bold decisions and effective measures in order to save the region and Iran’s ethic groups, including Kurds, Arabs, Balochs, Azeris and guarantees their cultural, constitutional, and human rights.
