Eleven members of the UN Security Council condemned the loss of civilian life in north-western Syria and expressed their concern “of a potential humanitarian catastrophe in the event of a full-scale military operation in Idlib.”
In a statement read by Belgian ambassador Marc Pecsteen de Buytswerve, the countries said they were “alarmed” by the displacement of over 150,000 persons, as well as the “targeting of population centres and civilian infrastructure including hospitals and schools.”
The eleven Security Council members consist of the United States, the United Kingdom, Equatorial Guinea, Poland, Cote d’Ivoire, Germany, Belgium, Kuwait, Peru, the Dominican Republic, and France. They urged all parties to “uphold international humanitarian law and protect civilians” while urging concerned parties to “recommit and comply fully with the ceasefire arrangements of the memorandum signed on 17 September, 2018.”
The countries also reaffirmed their commitment to the UN’s efforts and the UN-led political process seeking to find a solution to the Syrian crisis.
