” Alseeraj ” strongly condemns the escalating violence against healthcare centers in @syria , which flagrantly violate international humanitarian law, and the de-escalation agreements.

@alseeraj.syria appeals to the UN Security Council to issue a resolution to protect humanitarian workers in Syria.

@alseeraj.syria remain extremely concerned for the safety and protection of about 370,000 people who remain besieged in eastern Ghouta in Syria and we call for immediate access to the besieged towns in these district where civilians suffer daily violence and lack of basics under siege.
