UNITED NATIONS ORGANISATION, October 19 (Itar-Tass) - Under-Secretary General for Humanitarian Affairs and Emergency Relief Coordinator Valerie Amos has urged the Syrian army and rebels to take a break in battles in Damascus’ suburbs of Mouadamia for evacuating peaceful civilians and bringing medications.
In recent weeks Mouadamia’s suburbs, in the west of Damascus, has become one of the major areas where the government troops and the opposition armed units continued their fighting. Mouadamia is adjacent to Mezze Airport, which is located in several kilometres from the presidential palace.
The U.N. under-secretary general said humanitarian agencies had been given up an access to Damascus’ suburbs over several months.
However, last Sunday the Syrian office of the Red Crescent evacuated about 3,000 people from Mouadamia. She said the same number of civilians stayed in Mouadamia because they could not leave the area due to the intensive fighting and massed fire.
Thousands of families remain closed in other areas throughout Syria, for example in Nubil, Zahra, Aleppo, Homs and Al Hasek. Civilians should be allowed to pass to safe areas, Amps said, adding that the warring parties had signed corresponding obligation within international humanitarian law.
