Condemnation of Attack on Evacuee Buses of Foua and Kafariya
Dated: April 17, 2017
World Ahlul Bayt Islamic League (WABIL) condemns the appalling bomb attacks on the buses evacuating Shia refugees from al-Fou'a and Kafariya towns, west if Aleppo, in Idlib province as part of the safe passage accords in Syria. This barbaric attack by the Wahabi Salafist takfiri-inspired rebel terrorists has left almost 200 dead, many of them children. WABIL offers its condolences to the families of those brutally murdered.
The evacuees had suffered more than 2 years of brutality under the rebel terrorists. This evacuation agreement brokered last month was in exchange for the safe passage of Sunni residents and rebels in Madaya and Zabadani. However when 75 buses and 20 ambulances began the evacuation of innocent civilians this horrific attack was carried out. This brutality and the media fake news war on Syria is an outrageous affront to humanity, where the legitimate sovereign head and his people are being blamed and brutalised by heavily funded armed terrorists.
This attack has been carried out to stir up sectarian hatred. However Syria is a country where differences in sect or religion have never been divisive. It is a rich peaceful multifaith country now ravaged by war. WABIL holds the superpowers to account for the terrible attacks on Syria and for fuelling a rhetoric of "regime change" of a democratically elected leader. We ask President Trump, are the children killed in these attacks not "beautiful" enough for him to rescue? The West protests at the loss of life of westerners, but is Syrian life less valuable?
WABIL calls upon the international community to condemn this attack in clear language, and calls for support for the Syrian government in its fight against terrorism. We call upon all humanitarian bodies to investigate the source of funding arming the terrorists and to assist the Syrian government in bringing the perpetrators to justice.
