Member of the Syrian Coalition’s political committee Badr Jamous called for urgent humanitarian aid to besieged cities and towns across Syria, most importantly to the towns of Madaya, Daraya in rural Damascus as well as to the district of Waer in Homs.
Jamous said that the scarcity of humanitarian aid to besieged areas and the continued bombardment by the Assad regime and Russian forces on these areas undermined all chances of reaching a political solution needed to put an end to the suffering of the Syrian people.
The last convoy of humanitarian aid entered Daraya in June, while the last aid delivery entered Waer in July. The town of Nawa in rural Dara’a, meanwhile, received the last shipment of relief aid in July.
Mohammad Darwish, a doctor working at field hospital in the town of Madaya, on Tuesday warned of a humanitarian disaster as regime forces and the Hezbollah militias have been blocking the entry of humanitarian aid to the besieged town for nearly three months.
Jamous pointed out that the Assad regime still refuses to implement international resolutions on Syria, describing it as a blatant violation of the UN Security Council resolutions. He called on the United Nations to name and hold accountable those responsible for blocking the introduction of humanitarian aid to civilians trapped in besieged areas.
The local council in the district of Daraya on Monday appealed to the international community to take urgent action in order to stop the indiscriminate bombardment by regime forces on the district. The council also called for the immediate delivery of medical and relief aid to civilians trapped in the district which has been under siege by regime forces for over three and a half years.
The council called on the UN to dispatch a special commission of inquiry to investigate the use of napalm by regime forces in the district. (Source: Syrian Coalition + Smart News Network)
