“We condemn the implementation of chemical weapons which has been carried out by the illegitimate government of Bashar Assad backed by the Iran regime and the Russian government against the people of Khan Shaykhun in Syria.

We the political prisoners of Gohardasht (Rajai Shahr) Prison also condemn the chemical attacks launched by the criminal and murderous dictatorship of Syria. The innocent Syrians, especially the defenseless women and children are being treated with extreme cruelty and oppression for 6 years.”
