5-Aide humanitaire:

-The sanctions targeting the Syrian regime do not target humanitarian or medical aid needed to fight the #COVID19. They were imposed due to regime’s abuses against the Syrians and must not be lifted under false pretences, says the latest @snhr report.

-The UNSC should immediately reverse its Jan ’20 decision to cease all aid delivery from #Iraq to NE #Syria. 2 million people are now at risk, just days after the area declared its 1st #COVID19 death. Important from @hrw :

-The @WHO, « responsible for international public health, » removed a draft UNSC request to open a crucial border crossing from #Iraq into #Syria to help combat #COVID19. A shameful submission to [#Russia] pressure, putting politics above saving lives.
