EMERGENCY AID FOR STARVING CIVILIANS IN SYRIA
EDM #931
Tabled 11 January 2016
2015-16 Session
That this House notes with very great concern reports that Syrian civilians in towns including Madaya and Zabadani are being besieged and starved by forces loyal to Bashar al-Assad; regrets the horrendous suffering experienced by these men, women and children, who have been without food for months; further notes with great concern reports that people living in these towns have been forced to eat grass and leaves and kill pets; notes that people have already died of hunger; notes that Assad's forces have shot and bombed civilians, including children, who try to collect plants or firewood, causing a number of deaths and serious injuries, including the loss of limbs; observes that the UK has the capacity to deliver an aerial bombardment of Syria and therefore also has the capacity to deliver food aid; notes that starving people in these towns have repeatedly asked the international community for help, which has not been given; notes that the Assad regime has agreed to allow the UN to deliver aid, but there is uncertainty about how long this will last; believes that the UK has an urgent duty to respond to these calls and deliver food aid to relieve this appalling suffering; and calls on the Government to act immediately to airdrop food, fuel and medical supplies to these communities.
