UNITED STATES, WASHINGTON (OBSERVATORY) — Kuwait, Germany and Belgium have submitted to the UN Security Council a draft resolution calling for a ceasefire and respect for international humanitarian law in Syria.
This was stated by the Belgian Permanent Representative to the United Nations, Ambassador Mark Pickston, in a statement to reporters, Thursday.
Pickston said aerial attacks and rising tension threaten hospitals, schools, civilian structures and the safety of 3 million civilians in Idlib.
The Syrian regime and its supporters continue to ignore the Astana route agreements by conducting intensive military operations in the de-escalation zone that includes Idlib (north).
The continued progress of the regime in Idlib raises concern about massacres of civilians and the resulting migration.
According to the United Nations, more than 550 civilians have been killed in and around Idlib since April, and more than 1,400 have been injured in heavy shelling by regime forces on the province, the last of the Syrian opposition’s castles in the country.
