CARE continues to be horrified by the situation in Aleppo. Our team is receiving urgent pleas from our humanitarian colleagues and partners in Syrian NGOs to receive assistance and evacuate the citizens of East Aleppo. We are distressed to not be in a position to respond to these desperate pleas and call on the parties to stop this humanitarian catastrophe.
We are also deeply concerned by the continued, well-evidenced reports of executions, arrests, torture and disappearance of civilians. A recent UN report mentioned at least 82 civilians –including 11 women and 13 children- killed in Eastern Aleppo. The gross violations of humanitarian law – as indicated by the complete failure to discriminate between humanitarians, civilians and combatants – must stop.
This situation in Aleppo is a dramatic reflection of the failure of the international community. Not only are major powers watching this massacre unfold unwilling to take action to stop it, but Russia, a permanent Security Council member, is deeply complicit in violations.
