Qatar Concerned About Deteriorating Humanitarian Situation in Aleppo

Doha, – The State of Qatar has voiced its concern regarding the deterioration of the humanitarian situation in the Syrian city of Aleppo.

In a statement issued on Tuesday, the Foreign Ministry said the siege and the taking of innocent lives is unacceptable to human morals, principles and international law, stressing the condemnation and disapproval of what the Syrian regime is doing against hundreds of thousands of civilians, particularly women and children.

The Foreign Ministry called on the international society to shoulder its responsibilities in order to protect the Syrian people and ensure the delivery of humanitarian aid to Aleppo and all besieged cities.

The statement also reiterated the importance of reaching a political solution for the conflict in Syria in line with Geneva I and Security Council Resolution 2254 in order to end the worsening humanitarian tragedy of the Syrian people.

The statement noted that the crimes of the Syrian regime; its violation of the basic human rights; and the suffering of the Syrian people in terms of the siege, destruction and displacement, are major causes for feeding terrorism and extremism, which threatens security and stability in the region and the world, stressing that the eradication of terrorism will only be achieved by eliminating its causes.
