UN official: Washington is concerned over the impact of hostilities on civilians in north-west Syria

The United Nations Spokesman Stephane Dujarric confirmed that Washington is concerned about the ongoing impact of hostilities on civilians in north-west Syria during the month of Ramadan.

Dujarric made it clear that last Monday the shelling on residential neighborhoods in Sarmin city led to the killing of a 7-year-old girl and injuring 10 civilians, including women and children, and causing damage to the public and private properties.

Dujarric pointed out that the car bomb blast in a popular market in Azaz city, northern Aleppo, killed at least 8 people, including children and a woman, and injured others.

Dujarric pointed out to the killing of at least 11 people, including two girls since the beginning of this year, due to the hostilities in north-west Syria and injuring 50 others, including 16 children.

The Deputy Regional Humanitarian Coordinator for the Syria Crisis, David Carden, that civilian must never be a target.

The Syria Civil Defence documented earlier the respond of its teams, since the beginning of 2024 until last March 17, to 235 attacks on northwest Syria carried out by Assad regime forces and its loyal militias, killing 18 civilians and injuring 90 others.

Meanwhile, the Syria Civil Defense reaffirmed in a report on Tuesday, 3rd April 2024, that the ongoing shelling by the Assad regime and Russia threatens the lives of civilians in north-west Syria, undermines the difficult living reality, and turns the rituals of joy in the month of Ramadan and the moments of waiting for Eid into tragedies and sorrows for dozens of families.

The Syria Civil Defense considered these attacks to be a flagrant violation of international humanitarian law, in light of the international community’s failure to hold perpetrators of crimes against Syrians accountable.

The Syria Civil Defense stressed the need to put an immediate end to these attacks, ensure the protection of civilians through special agreements and treaties, implement Resolution 2254, which guarantees the return and protection of displaced persons, stop the shelling, and hold those responsible accountable.
