Coalition Leader Calls Out De Mistura for ‘Double-standards’ on Assad, Russian War Crimes

A prominent Syrian opposition leader has criticized remarks by UN envoy to Syria Staffan de Mistura who said that the offensive launched by the Free Syrian Army and rebel fighters to break the Assad regime’s siege on Aleppo may amount to “war crimes.”

Secretary-General of the Syrian National Coalition Abdul Ilah Fahd said that De Mistura’s comments were biased and represented a “double-standard,” adding that the UN envoy has been silent over the war crimes committed by the Assad regime and its Russian ally in Aleppo’s eastern districts, which has faced siege for nearly three months.
