Joel Millman, spokesman for the International Organization for Migration (IOM), told international media that if a solution is not found to the five-year-old Syrian war, at least another 1 million Syrian refugees would leave the war-torn country.
He said that there are 6.3 million people displaced inside Syria and four million refugees in neighboring countries, stressing that there are no indications for an end in sight to the conflict in Syria. He added that we must prepare for the worst-case scenario with the approach of winter.
Adrian Edwards, spokesman for the High Commissioner of the United Nations for Refugees (UNHCR), said that the commission see displacement will continue inside Syria, adding that there are a lot of people in need of assistance. He warns that if they are not relieved, they will have to change their places and, eventually, will leave their country.
According to the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs, 13.5 million Syrians are in need for relief aid.
President Khoja said earlier that the Russian invasion of Syria will destabilize the region and threaten its security.
Khoja stresses the need to establish a safe zone in the country’s north and south to protect a Syrians from Assad’s barrel bombs and to curb the flow of refugees to outside Syria.
He added that a safe zone is needed to achieve stability, enable the displaced people return to their homes and to deliver relief aid more effectively. (Source: Syrian Coalition + Anadolu)
