On Tuesday, the Response Coordination Group denounced Russia’s hostile statements against the residents of northwestern Syria, considering it responsible for the launching of new military operations.
The Group stated that Russian statements represent people in northern Syria as terrorists, making Russia responsible for any launching of new military operations in the area. The Group added that Russia made similar accusations prior to controlling the de-escalation areas in southern and central Syria.
The Group stressed the inability of northwestern Syria to bear new displacement waves, calling on the international community to stop Russia and the Syrian government from practicing hostilities and committing massacres.
The Group indicated that the Syrian government forces and their loyalist militias continue to send more military reinforcements to restore military operations and control new areas, which is a clear violation of the ceasefire agreement in the area.
