A prominent leader of the Syrian opposition abroad has called Russian and Iranian citizens “a legitimate target for opposition militants in Syria.”

“Russia, along with Iran, provides Bashar al-Assad’s regime with weapons and ammunition, and supports it politically, therefore the citizens of these countries present legitimate targets for militants in Syria,” Haitham al-Maleh said in an interview with Al Jazeera.

Al-Maleh, who had several spells as a political prisoner in Syria since the 1960s, has received numerous awards for defending human rights in Syria and opposing violence against civilians.
