The situation in Syria is deteriorating day be day announcing the total destruction of the country. The Islamic state militants in Syria havetaken over on April 1st the refugee camp Yarmuk, at the gates of Damascus. Set up in 1957 to host Palestinians who were fleeing from Cisgiordania, and which has come to host 150 thousand people. Today, only 18 thousand are left who are involved in the skirmishes between the militia of the Caliphate supported by Al Queda of the Al Nusra front against militants of the group Aknaf Bait al Maqdis and rebels of the free Syrian army.
Though th Council of Security of the UNO had asked access to go into the area to bring aid, the intervention has been obstructed owing to the incessant conflicts under way. Not only, according to sources from the organisation, “dozens of medical doctors, humanatarian and civil operators, have been killed, abducted or wounded in the past few days; and many are still missing”. Save the Children has launched an appeal to free 3500 children trapped inside the refugee camps. According to the humanatarian operators, the risk is that they could end up being as they had been so repeating the error and horror of Srebrenica massacre.
“30% of the children has already died from starvation and others lack food. There is no milk and there’s no possibilità of haveing access to any sort of treatment. “Humanatarian aid is urgently needed”, is the plea of Foad Aodi, chairman of the community of the Arab world in Italy and who is member of the Association of Foreign Doctors.
In the meantime, the helicopters of the regime of Assad have exploded six barrel-bombs over the territory occupied by Jihadists. The news was posted on Tweet by activists of the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, who have also reported of two further shots this morning. It is still not clear whether there have been any victims.
Regarding the Syrian crisis, Mahmoud Abbas, special envoy of the Palestinian president has said that i twill be “impossible” reaching a peaceful settlement with the Caliphate’s men, which is a confirmation of what the Ministero f Damascus Ali Haidar declared yesterday: “Only a military intervention will be possible at Yarmuk”.
