Saudi King Abdullah bin Abdul Aziz al-Saud launched a national donation campaign for Syria and called upon all Saudis to take part in helping the Syrian people who are in the midst of an uprising against the regime of President Bashar al-Assad.
The Saudi Ministry of Interior announced that the campaign, set to start Monday, will cover all parts of the kingdom so that all Saudi citizens will get the chance to offer the Syrian people what they can to help them in their time of crisis, the Saudi News Agency reported.
The Saudi cabinet, presided by King Abdullah, has expressed more than once its indignation towards the escalation in violence on the part of the Syrian regime which has been demonstrated in attacks on several towns and villages. The Syrian regime, said the cabinet, is violating all Arab and international commitments.
The cabinet condemned in the particular the latest massacre that took place in the predominantly Sunni village of al-Tremsa in the Hama governorate.
In a statement it issued on the Syrian crisis, the Saudi cabinet accused Bashar al-Assad’s regime of terrorism and called upon the International Community to interfere on behalf of the Syrian people.
