Forced Displacement of Aleppo Residents is War Crime: Coalition

Vice President of the Syrian National Coalition, Nora al-Ameer has called on the international community to stop the Assad regime’s forced displacement of unarmed civilians out of Aleppo and its countryside.

 

Regime forces’ escalating attacks and indiscriminate shelling on Aleppo have caused mass displacement of the civilian population of the city.

 

"This mass displacement of the civilian population is a war crime that is being met by international silence, which is as heinous as Assad’s crimes themselves," Ameer said.

 

Her remarks came after a wave of mass displacement out of Aleppo and its northern countryside in the wake of Assad massing his forces to encircle the city, and after the horrific massacre committed by his air force in the village of Tal Qarah, where 19 civilians were killed.
