Damas / Genève – Le Comité international de la Croix-Rouge (CICR), au vu de l'immensité des besoins humanitaires, demande que tous les sièges des localités syriennes soient levés de toute urgence. Cet appel fait suite à l'accès obtenu en début de semaine à Madaya, Foua et Kefraya, trois localités assiégées depuis des mois, où les habitants étaient réduits à vivre dans des conditions déplorables. Des convois conjoints du CICR, des Nations Unies et du Croissant-Rouge arabe syrien ont pu y acheminer des vivres, des médicaments et des couvertures pour des dizaines de milliers de personnes.

 The International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) says that, as a matter of urgency, and because of overwhelming humanitarian needs, all sieges being carried out across Syria must be ended. The appeal comes after access was granted earlier this week to three towns in the country which have been under siege for months. The populations in all three areas were found to be living in appalling conditions. Joint ICRC, UN and Syrian Arab Red Crescent convoys delivered food, medicines and blankets to tens of thousands of people in Madaya, Kefraya and Foua.
