“ While a large scale international humanitarian effort is desperately needed in Syria, it will not happen until the parties to the conflict engage with aid organizations and identify practical steps to permit them to operate safely and effectively. All armed parties to this conflict must allow humanitarian access to civilians, as they are obliged to do under international humanitarian law.
The people of Syria have suffered unimaginably over the last four years. The continued obstruction of humanitarian aid greatly compounds their misery. The people of Syria are being denied the most fundamental assistance and the world cannot continue to look away. We can and must do more for them.“
(Dr. Joanne Liu, International President MSF)
