“Humanitarian agencies feel sickened by what is happening in Eastern Ghouta. Their staff, colleagues and Syrian humanitarian partners are caught in the line of fire. The violence has grown so intense that they have had to halt deliveries of aid and stop urgent humanitarian services to desperate people who’ve already endured years of besiegement and deprivation. But they are also sickened that no matter how many times they’ve raised the alarm, taken the step of speaking out, called on the Security Council to do something, the violence and brutality will sink to new lows.” said Mathieu Rouquette, Syria INGO Regional Forum Representative, which comprises 65 international organisations providing assistance to those affected by the conflict in Syria.

“We once again call on the Government of Syria, armed opposition groups and their international backers, including members of the UN Security Council to live up to their obligations and immediately halt the horror unfolding in Eastern Ghouta."
