The National Coalition of the Syrian Revolutionary and Opposition Forces affirms its support for the decision taken by the military factions and the forces of the FSA regarding the cessation of hostilities, stressing the shared position of the factions and full support for their demands without reservation.
The National Coalition holds the Assad regime and its allies accountable for the collapse of the agreement and all the consequences thereof because they have violated the agreement without any serious international position.
The international community has failed in shouldering its responsibilities to provide appropriate mechanisms to implement international resolutions, so the cessation hostilities agreement turned to be a cover for continued crimes, as it has become clear for everyone.
The Coalition salutes the rebels’ sacrifices and the heroes of the FSA and those factions who are committed to the aspirations of the Syrian people, stressing that the sons of the great revolution would remain the guardians of its goals and principles and committed to complete it until achieving the revolution’s demands of freedom, justice and dignity.
