The Syria Response Coordinators Teams have urged the United Nations delegation, led by David Carden, the UN’s Deputy Regional Humanitarian Coordinator for the Syrian Crisis, to visit the areas currently under attack by Assad regime forces and the Russian air force. They aim to provide the delegation with firsthand evidence of the forces’ deliberate targeting of civilians in the region.
Despite the United Nations conducting ongoing visits to internally displaced persons (IDP) camps in northwestern Syria, the response coordinators have highlighted the alarming fact that the Assad regime and Russian forces continue to carry out attacks in close proximity to the UN delegations, located just a few kilometers away.
Expressing their concern, the response coordinators have emphasized that the recent attacks by the Assad regime have resulted in the tragic loss of life and injuries among civilians, including children. They further highlight the lack of a clear stance from the United Nations regarding these attacks and the absence of holding the responsible parties directly accountable.
The intensified artillery shelling by Assad’s forces has primarily targeted the town of Darat Izza and the villages of Kafar Nuran, Al-Qasr, Al-Wasata, Kafr Ta’al, and Taqad in rural Aleppo. These attacks have already claimed the life of a young man in Kafar Nuran, with numerous injuries reported in the other targeted areas, including children.
