Press Release Original in arabic
May 23, 2016
The Syrian Coalition condemns any and all terrorist attacks on civilians in Syria and elsewhere. The Coalition condemns today’s bombings that rocked the cities of Jablah and Tartous, leaving dozens of civilians killed and injured.
The Coalition stresses that the Assad regime is responsible, whether directly or indirectly, for all terrorist operations targeting civilians in Syria.
Indeed, the Assad regime has planned and contributed to the rise of ISIS. In addition, it has been involved in orchestrating state terrorism against the Syrian people.
These terrorist bombings targeted civilians indiscriminately. They are similar to the war crimes committed by the Assad regime against the Syrian people in various parts of Syria on a daily basis using all types of weapons and including mass liquidation of detainees in Assad’s prisons.
These attacks refute the Assad regime’s allegation that it is protecting minorities in Syria; they provide yet further proof that the Assad regime has lost the ability to protect civilians even in areas under its control.
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.
