SNC Strongly Condemns the Attack on Arab League Observers' Convoy


The Syrian National Council (SNC) strongly condemns the attack on the Arab League observers’ convoy that occurred yesterday, Tuesday Jan. 10, 2012. This attack came only days after the Arab League decided to continue its observer mission in Syria, and took place the same day as Bashar Al-Assad’s fourth speech during which he verbally attacked the Arab League.

Eleven observers were slightly injured when pro-regime militias attacked the observers’ convoy in Lattakia.

The SNC considers this to be a criminal act, and an indirect outcome of the threats issued by Syria’s Foreign Minister immediately preceding the arrival of observers to Syria. We also consider this criminal act to be directly incited by Assad’s comments in his fourth speech, which included direct threats to the Arab League. The SNC believes it is necessary to unify efforts to expose the details of this attack, and calls on all groups to take extra precautions against the regime’s attempts to drive animosity and sow doubt between the population in revolt and the Arab League observers.
