Statement by the Local Coordination Committees in Syria Regarding the 
Paris Attacks


The LCC condemns the recent terrorist attacks in Paris, which led to 
many casualties among innocent civilians. We assure the general public 
that the Syrian people are completely aware of the catastrophic 
consequences of barbaric violence. We have been subjected to 
comprehensive terror by Assad’s regime and his partners in crimes 
against humanity, including ISIS. We have been warning, since the 
beginning of the revolution for freedom, dignity, and democracy, that 
the Assad regime would export violence in an attempt to distract 
attention from his crimes inside Syria. Today, while we are overwhelmed 
with sorrow and the daily victims, as well as the destruction we 
witness, we offer our condolences to the families and loved ones of the 
victims of the terrorist attacks in Paris, and share their pain. We 
continue to work through peaceful methods to overcome dictatorship in 
all its forms.
We hope the consequences of the tragic events will not have a negative 
impact on Syrian refugees, who fled their home because of the terrorism 
perpetrated by the Assad regime and ISIS. We stress as well the 
importance of the need to support the Syrian people, both inside the 
country and abroad, in order to help us achieve our right to be 
liberated from tyranny and terrorism. Acceptance of Assad remaining in 
power after his crimes against humanity will not help in the fight 
against terrorism; on the contrary, it maintains the source of 
No act of terror, no matter how extreme, will derail our objectives to 
achieve freedom, democracy, and dignity for all.
May hope and humanity replace fear and prejudice. May all victims of 
terrorism rest in peace. And let us endeavour, together, to achieve
