The Syrian Coalition salutes the Syrian people who took to the streets in around 70 locations across Syria to demonstrate on Friday. Demonstrators condemned the threats being issued by the Assad regime and its backers against Idlib. They also expressed their outright rejection of the latest remarks of the UN envoy to Syria Staffan de Mistura as representing as a green light to further murder and displacement of innocent civilians.
Waving the flag of the Syrian revolution, demonstrators reiterated their rejection of the so-called reconciliations and settlements with the Assad regime, reaffirming their absolute commitment to the principles of the revolution and its continuation until the overthrow of the Assad regime. They also renewed their total rejection of terrorism in all its forms as they recalled the role of the Free Syrian Army in the fight against terrorism.
Through these demonstrations, the Syrian people sent out clear, strong messages denoting their high morale and indomitable will to confront the Assad regime in Idlib and that any reckless move would be very costly to the Assad regime and its allies.
