The Syrian Coalition has sent a letter to the UN’s Secretary General, Ban Ki Moon, reiterating the need to immediately begin investigations into the use of chemical weapons in Syria. In the letter to the UN, the Syrian Coalition reiterates its offer of full cooperation with the investigation team, particularly in assuring their unfettered access into liberated areas.
As the Free Syrian Army has recently liberated the Khan al-Assal area, we urge the UN team to begin its investigation in this area and hope to welcome their arrival without any further delays.
The Syrian Coalition is firmly committed to upholding international humanitarian and human rights laws and demands that any individuals found to be involved in the deployment of chemical weapons in Syria be held accountable for these crimes.
We ask for mercy for our martyrs, health for our wounded, and freedom for our detainees.
Long live Syria and its people, free and with honor.
