‘A Disaster That Will Shame Humanitarian Organisations Forever’

at

This afternoon.

A representative of the Syrian Civil Defence (The White Helmets) addresses a UN Security Council Arria-Formula Open Meeting on besieged Aleppo.

He said:

“We are speaking about a siege of 350,000 people, not 10, or 50, or a 100 people. We are talking about 350,000 humans. A huge humanitarian disaster that will shame humanitarian organisations forever.”

Belfast-born Anna Nolan, director of The Syria Campaign, tweetz:

Dark day for international community when Syrian Civil Defence who are picking up the bodies also have to tell UNSC [United Nations Security Council] to do their jobs…

Watch the meeting live here.

    Not Irelands problem.

    Let the USA, Canada and Russia help these people. Massive countries with large cities big enough to absorb these people.
