In a move that reflects the Syrian regime’s behavior, as well as its criminal thinking, the capital city of Damascus saw two terrorist explosions that led to the deaths of innocent Syrian citizens.
The two explosions occurred within a short timeframe and coincided with the arrival of the Arab League’s observers, who are in Syria to uncover the regime’s crimes and killings carried out against peaceful protesters.
The Syrian regime and its security apparatus bear sole, direct responsibility for the terrorist explosions. This incident serves as the criminal security apparatus’s warning to the Arab League observers who attempt to approach any security installations, and a separate message to the rest of the world that the regime is facing an external threat and not a popular uprising demanding freedom and dignity.
The incident is also linked to measures the regime has taken in recent days, whereby thousands of detainees were transported to fortified military headquarters. In addition, doctors and medical personnel in hospitals were cautioned against making any statements to the Arab League observers. Medical personnel were also instructed to try to hide all traces of killing, torture, or mass graves of those who have been killed at the hands of the regime and its cronies.
Today’s fallen heroes represent part of the price of freedom paid by the Syrian people to rid themselves of tyranny and crime. The Syrian people will hold those who committed such acts accountable, and any regime attempts to conceal their crimes are futile. The SNC cautions that regime operatives are planning to commit more bombings in Syria to promote a climate of terror and chaos, and to prevent Arab League observers from discovering evidence already known to the public in Syria and around the world.
