The Syrian Coalition called upon the free people all over the world to protest outside the Russian and Iranian embassies to condemn the war crimes their forces are committing in Syria and to show solidarity with the people of Aleppo.
Regime forces are pounding the remaining rebel pocket in eastern Aleppo with of tanks, aircraft, and artillery fire. Nearly, 100,000 civilians, of whom 60% are women and children, are currently trapped inside a 2-sq area in the neighborhood of Sukkari and parts of Saif Addawua.
Pro-regime militias on Monday carried out summary executions against dozens of civilians in eastern Aleppo, while civil defense teams said they were unable to recover the bodies of people killed or rescue the wounded stuck under rubble of bombed houses due to the ongoing onslaught including intense, constant bombardment by regime forces and their allies.
Member of the Coalition’s political committee Yasser Farhan said that the atrocious crimes taking place in Aleppo cannot be carried out by a civilized country in the 21st century, but by a mafia-like state and medieval criminals. He stressed the need for all free peoples around the world to stand against these heinous crimes and demand their immediate cessation.
Member of the Coalition Dima Moussa stressed that failure of the Security Council in Syria makes it imperative that all the free people around the world stand in solidarity with civilians in Aleppo. She added that these civilians are under real threat of being slaughtered, murdered and raped by Assad regime and Iranian-backed foreign militias. She called for demonstrations in front of the Russian and Iranian embassies and for pressure on their governments to stop the genocide taking place in Syria.
