Western military action in Syria would be a “satanic intervention against a satanic regime”, a leading Syrian opposition figure has warned.

Speaking to the Huffington Post UK, Haytham al-Manna, the Paris-based spokesman of the National Coordination Committee (NCC), said: “Our position is against any [western] aggression against Syria. There is no [option of] military aggression against the regime, it will be against.. the population.”

The NCC, which consists of a dozen or so secular, leftist political parties inside Syria, is not a member of the Syrian National Council (SNC), the coalition of opposition groups recognised as the legitimate representative of the Syrian people by several western governments. The latter has long supported western military intervention against Assad; the former does not.

The NCC’s Manna, a veteran human-rights activist whose brother was killed by the Assad regime, said US ordnance won’t “make the distinction between military and civilian targets. I saw what happened in Iraq..and all the [previous] American interventions.”
