A member of the Syrian Civil Defense ó a group of volunteer first responders also known as the White Helmets ó has criticized the U.N. humanitarian aid agency for suspending all convoys in Syria.

Ibrahim Alhaj told The Associated Press on Tuesday that Syrian civilians will pay the price for the decision.

Syria: Attack on humanitarian convoy is an attack on humanity

 September 20, 2016



Press Release:

The Syrian Arab Red Crescent (SARC), the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) and the International Federation of Red Cross Red Crescent Societies (IFRC) are outraged by last nightís horrific attack on a SARC warehouse and an aid convoy in Orem Al Kubra (Big Orem) in rural Aleppo.

Around twenty civilians and one SARC staff member were killed, as they were unloading trucks carrying vital humanitarian aid. Much of the aid was destroyed. The attack deprives thousands of civilians of much-needed food and medical assistance.

ďWeíre totally devastated by the deaths of so many people, including one of our colleagues, the director of our sub-branch, Omar Barakat. He was a committed and brave member of our family of committed staff and volunteers, working relentlessly to alleviate the suffering of the Syrian people. It is totally unacceptable that our staff and volunteers continue to pay such a high price because of the ongoing fighting,Ē said the SARC President, Dr Abdulrahman Attar.

ďFrom what we know of yesterdayís attack, there has been a flagrant violation of International Humanitarian Law (IHL), which is totally unacceptable. Failing to respect and protect humanitarian workers and structures might have serious repercussions on ongoing humanitarian operations in the country, hence depriving millions of people from aid essential to their survivalĒ, said Peter Maurer, the ICRC President.

ďToday, the Red Cross and Red Crescent is in mourning. In solidarity with the Syrian Arab Red Crescent, we are calling on the international community to ensure the protection of humanitarian aid workers and volunteers. We are not part of this conflict,Ē said Tadateru Konoť, the President of the IFRC.

Syria is one of the most dangerous conflicts for humanitarian workers in the world. During the past six years, 54 staff and volunteers of SARC have lost their lives whilst carrying out their duties.

The International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement repeats its demand that all parties to the conflict adhere to the rules of international humanitarian law, which includes protecting aid workers.

In Aleppo, the most important thing to remember is that all life is precious. The White Helmets search for survivors among the wreckage as bombs continue to fall. These ordinary men are extraordinary heroes.

At least four aid workers were killed in an overnight airstrike on a medical center near Aleppo, according to their charity.

The attack in the rebel-held town of Khan Touman came one day after airstrikes hit an aid convoy in the nearby town of Uram al-Kubra, killing at least 20 people and touching off a round of blame-trading.
