A member of the delegation of the Syrian National Coalition Yasser Farhan in an interview with Sky News on February 20th stated:”the Syrian Opposition calls on the U.S. and the U.N. to list the militias of the Iranian regime as terrorist organizations since they carry out the destructive policy of the Iranian regime in Syria.

Yasser Farhan added:”speaking of al-Qaeda in Syria is not acceptable and it is not in favor of the Syrian Revolution. The presence of the Iranian regime’s militias is a threat to Syria. There are currently 66 terrorist militia groups in Syria affiliated with the Iranian regime; fighting for Assad against the Syrian Revolution and committing war crimes against civilians.

The Assad regime is destroying all components of the Syrian society by using banned weapons. Under such circumstances and due to the threats, the opposition is focusing on the Iranian regime and its backed-up militants.

In fact, we call for designating the militias of the Iranian regime as the terrorist groups that follow the expansionist and sectarian policies and they are hostile to all countries of the region. We call on the U.S., the U.N., and all countries supporting the Syrian Revolution to list the militias as terrorist groups.”
