Turkey - SMART

On Tuesday, the Civil Defense said that Russia attacks them to undermine its reports on Russian bombings of civilian areas and war crimes committed with the Syrian government forces.

Ayman Aqad, the manager of the Civil Defense media office, reported that since 2015, Russia has reported wrong information and delivered false statements to the United Nations Security Council. Aqad believes this is a strategy Russia still uses to distract the international community's attention from the future of Idlib and protection of its people.

The Civil Defense's accusations against Russia follow the speech of Vasily Nebenzeya, the Russian permanent representative to the UN. On Monday, Nebenzya spoke before the Security Council saying that the Civil Defense and opposition military factions in Northern Syria are preparing a large-scale chemical attack against the Syrian government forces.

Aqad noted that the Civil Defense works in accordance with its available resources, responds to Syrian government attacks, and regularly documents crimes against civilians in Syria as it is often the first witness of war crimes.

On October 12, 2018, the Civil Defense described Russia's request to expel Civil Defense members from Syria as absurd. The Civil Defense added that they will not allow anyone to demand the expelling of its members from their home country.

The Civil Defense is an independent organization that rescues injured people and removes and documents victims of bombings around Syria. The Syrian government and Russia target Civil Defense centers regularly, killing and injuring its members. In 2016, the Civil Defense was nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize and won the Right Livelihood Award commonly known as the Alternative Nobel Prize.
