The Syrian National Coalition reaffirms its support for the demands of the people of the town of Manbij. It stresses that the only option should be to liberate the town from terrorist organizations; ensure that it is spared the terror of the Assad regime forces; and do everything necessary to facilitate the return of its people to their homes.
The people of Manbij –Arabs, Circassians, Kurds, and Turkomen – have received tens of thousands of their fellow Syrians fleeing the oppression of the regime and its allied terrorist organizations over the past several years.
The Syrian Interim Government, with all its institutions, stands ready to fulfill its duty to provide security and stability to the town; facilitate the return of its people; and foil attempts to hand the town over to the regime forces as such a move will force the remaining residents to be displaced once again.
