SEO Chairman, Dr Mazen Hasan, stated “Assad’s attack specifically targeting refugees at the Syria-Turkey border crossing is intended to send a strong message to the Syrian people that they will never be safe from his army and militias. It is the textbook definition of terrorism.” Dr Hasan added, “Assad specifically targeted this border crossing, because he knows that this is the primary point by which most of the humanitarian aid from international organizations is delivered. This attack highlights the need for a no fly zone and safe zone specifically in Northern Syria. It is largely due to the international community’s refusal to implement a no-fly zone that Assad is able to conduct such brazen and horrific acts.”
