31 March 2015 – The humanitarian situation in conflict-torn Syria is deteriorating even further amid reports that the city of Idleb has fallen to anti-government insurgents, a senior United Nations relief official has warned.
“I am gravely concerned by the ongoing fighting taking place in Idleb governorate and its possible impact on hundreds of thousands of civilians,” Yacoub El Hillo, the UN Humanitarian Coordinator in Syria, declared in a press release.Reportedly fell? The UN is clearly not verifying the rebels claims!
“I appeal to all parties to this conflict to adhere to their obligations to protect civilians and all humanitarian personnel under International Humanitarian Law and Human Rights Law.”
Last weekend, Idleb, located in northwest Syria, reportedly fell under the control of a coalition of anti-government armed groups, according to the UN Office for the High Commissioner (OHCHR). The city was subsequently shelled by Government airplanes, resulting in the deaths of at least 15 civilians. The Syrian Air Force then expanded its raids throughout the governorate of Idleb, attacking the towns of Sarmin, Mantaf and Nayrab.
The NATO backed terrorists certainly implied or led persons to believe they took the city. But the initial reporting was very suspicious. Images poured out through social media, but, we've all seen that too many times to take it at face value. Other reports had rebels on the outside areas of the city. Where they took pictures to 'make their case'
At a press briefing in Geneva today, OHCHR confirmed it had received reports of civilian casualties resulting from these attacks but could not yet verify the number of dead and injured.
In his press release yesterday, Mr. El Hillo cautioned that the situation in Idleb had become “increasingly dire” with electricity shortages and the closure of schools and hospitals. In addition, the city’s estimated 500,000 inhabitants remain in the city as fighting intensifies.
“I appeal to all parties to de-escalate hostilities and to allow humanitarian actors to deliver urgently needed life-saving help, which can offer some reprieve from the daily suffering Syrians face,” Mr. El Hillo continued. “While humanitarian actors continue to scale-up assistance, their efforts cannot be a substitute for a political solution to the crisis in Syria.”These words coming from the UN just sound like blah, blah, blah to me! I've read their phony empty words of concern for too many years now.
Meanwhile, in its briefing today from Geneva, the OHCHR added its concern about threats by armed opposition leaders to attack the predominately Shi’ite villages of Al-Fu’ah and Kafraya.
The claims of the NATO backed mercenaries were clearly false when they were initially made a few days back, however, the fighting presently is real.
I do believe that the NATO backed terror crew is making a push to take Syrian territory, for a no fly zone:
“The Syrian National Coalition calls for the establishment of a no-fly zone in northern Syria, including over Idlib. Without it, the territory may quickly fall back into the hands of the regime or ISIL. A no-fly zone will protect civilians on the ground from Assad’s aerial attacks, enable safer access for humanitarian aid and create the space needed to establish moderate governance and basic services.To create yet another terror state called Kurdistan (think Kosovo). The no fly will enable the NATO global tyranny nations, such as Canada, to wantonly kill civilians & destroy yet another nation but certainly not to destroy ISIS. ISIS is NATO's army. It provides NATO the necessary pretext to invade nation after nation. Iraq. Syria. Libya. NATO's targets are endless and some version of NATO's Islamist Army always provides cover for the real agenda- Nation destruction. Destabilization. Forcing mass immigration. Victims for human trafficking. Victims for organ trafficking. It's all a disgrace.
