Hadi al-Bahra, chief Syrian opposition negotiator at the Geneva peace talks, said the ongoing battles in Kasab indicated the resilience of opposition fighters and that, contrary to the regime's judgment, the war was not lost in Syria.Since joining the Syrian National Coalition, Bahra, an industrial engineer who attended university in the United States, has made use of his expertise in communications to promote the Syrian uprising. He met with The Daily Star in Istanbul to discuss the implications of the Kasab battle, the possibility of reaching a political settlement in Geneva and the recent elections held in Turkey.
