Opposition Leaders Visit Liberated North to Check Situation on the Ground

A high-level opposition delegation toured liberated areas in Syria’s north to inspect the situation on the ground for refugees over the Eid Al-Fitr holidays.

Syrian National Coalition President Riad Seif and interim government Prime Minister Jawad Abu Hatab visited Syrian refugees traveling from Turkey to Syria for the Eid al-Fitr holiday through the Bab al-Salama border crossing. The delegation also visited displaced people near the Turkish border and spoke to people about the difficulties they are facing.

The delegation met with heads of local councils in northern Syria and with Syrian Kurdish tribal representatives. Seif stressed the need for coordination among all institutions of the revolution to provide services to the civilian population in the liberated areas and alleviate the suffering being caused by Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and his allies.

Seif also stressed the need to unify the revolutionary military groups into a single body under the banner of a national army to defend the Syrian people and their rights.

During the trip, the delegation also visited colleges of the University of Aleppo, a branch of the Institute for the Preparation of Teachers and the interim government's headquarters in the town of Azaz.
