We, Syrians in the UK, condemn the murder of our fellow Briton David Haines at the hands of the so-called 'Islamic State' and wish to offer our deepest condolences to his friends and family. The murder of David reminds us all of the murder of Dr Abbas Khan in December 2013 at the hands of the Assad regime.
