[23 June 2017] The Syrian Network for Human Rights (SNHR) urges French President Emmanuel Macron to protect the Syrian people against all indiscriminate and unlawful attacks, and take action – including airdrops – to ensure immediate humanitarian access. Doing so is the best way to ensure the defeat of terrorism.
“Europe will never be secure until the root cause of the conflict is addressed – Assad’s calculated brutality against innocent civilians,” said SNHR Chairman Fadel Abdul Ghany. “The Assad regime is overwhelmingly responsible for the relentless aerial bombardment, torture, disappearances, besiegement, and forced displacement that has created the conditions in which terrorism can thrive. A war criminal cannot be a partner in peace.”
