The President of the Syrian National Coalition, the major opposition umbrella, called on the international community to hold international responsibility, both politically and ethically, to come to the Syrian people rescue.
Dr. Ahmad Muaz al-Khatib said in a letter sent to the United Nations ad other international entities that “ending the massacre in Syria is the responsibility of the international community.”
The letter was addressed to the Secretary General of the United Nations, the member states of the UN Security Council, the Secretary General of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation, the Secretary General of the League of Arab states, the United Nations Envoy to Syria, and to the world leaders.
Khatib said in the short letter, a copy of which was obtained by the Syrian Observer, that “it is not enough that the criminal regime is bombarding citizens by planes, rockets and heavy weapons, but has gone as far as to literally kneading the bread with the flesh and blood of innocent children. It has destroyed the bakeries, Mosques and fuel station, in addition to committing a mass genocide. There is no crime against humanity that this regime has committed.”
The United Nations has estimated the number of people who were killed in Syria within the past 21 month as 60,000 people.
“You are all requested to hold international responsibility: politically and ethically. Meanwhile, we wish all the people of the world, a year full of tolerance, security and peace. May a bloodless dawn rise on us all,” the letter concluded.
