Is the world failing to Syrian peoples?
The Syrian civil war is a human calamity and it’s getting worse. It’s been four years, more than one person is killed every 10 minutes and millions have been displaced.
Security Council resolution which was passed in February 2014 that called for an increase in humanitarian aid, a stop on attacks on civilians, an end to torture and kidnapping and the lifting of sieges of populated areas have failed miserably. In the 12 months since the Resolution 2139 was passed Syrians have witnessed suffering and death and an ever-increasing destruction.
A London-based group, The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights has reported that 2014 was the deadliest year so far in the never-ending conflict that began in March 2011 as an uprising against the regime of President Bashar al-Assad. According to the observatory nearly 18,000 civilians were killed in the violence in Syria last year.
The number of people in need of humanitarian aid in Syria increased during 2014, rising to 12.2 million from 9.3 million at the end of 2013.It includes a millions of children in need which had been up from 4.3 million in December 2013 to 5.6 million in December 2014. Number of refugees has increased from 2.4 million to 3.8 million — and a 1.1 million rise, to 7.6 million, in internally displaced people. Aid convoys are finding it harder to get to the people who need their help, financial support is weakening: Syria crisis appeals were only 57% funded in 2014, compared with 71% in 2013.
The aid groups’ report entitled “Failing Syria,” states the worsening problems and called on Security Council members to “use their influence with the warring parties and their financial resources to put an end to the suffering of Syrian peoples.”
