A senior member of the Syrian opposition has confirmed during the Geneva talks that the delegation is in possession of visual evidence which confirms that the regime in Damascus has ties with Daesh, Al-Arabiya has reported.
According to Colonel Fateh Hassoun, the involvement included the handing over of Tadmur to the extremist group. “The file will be handed over to the United Nations,” he announced.
Hassoun had previously stated that the attack on Homs was executed by government forces, and that the opposition’s own evidence proves that there is a relationship between the regime and Daesh, and they are coordinating with one another.
Moreover, Naser Al-Hariri, another member of the Syrian opposition delegation, accused the government group of trying to sabotage the talks. He added that the group consists of at least five people from Cairo and Moscow who are not listed by the High Negotiations Committee.
Al-Hariri responded to demands by representatives of the regime to condemn attacks on the security forces in Homs by pointing out that the delegates from Damascus had not spoken about the air strikes which were carried out against civilians by the Syrian air force. “Our position is honest and clear in condemning all terrorism and terrorist attacks,” he insisted. “We also condemn Daesh and everyone who is related to unpatriotic and un-Syrian agendas.”
Talks between the Syrian regime and opposition forces began last week at the United Nations in Geneva.
