While the international community urges unfettered humanitarian mission inside devastated areas in Syria, the Assad regime continues impeding the UN efforts to reach its goals, and shut the door on any immediate resolution to help the country out of the crisis

Women and children take shelter from fierce fighting between the Free Syrian Army and government troops in Idlib, north Syria, on Saturday.

While the international community urges for unfettered humanitarian access inside devastated areas in Syria, the Assad regime continues impeding the UN efforts to reach its goals, as reported by the Voice of America on March 9th: “The United Nations says Syria is refusing 'unhindered' access for humanitarian aid.”

According to BBC News reports, ”The UN says more than 7,500 people have died as a result of the violence in Syria over the past 12 months, about 11,000 Syrians have taken refuge in Turkey’s Camps.” In the face of this extreme plight of Syrians, and the alarming number of people affected by the continuous assaults by Assad regime, Assad shows no signs of cooperation with the UN envoy to Syria and insists on obstructing all humanitarian efforts.

Syrian Expatriates denounces Assad regime's impeding acts toward the humanitarian aid access to the devastated areas.

Dr Mazen Hassan, SEO founder, said ”Assad regime’s insistence on blocking the UN humanitarian mission to reach the devastated areas is a warning sign and denotes Assad’s intention to continue his ongoing atrocities against our people in Syria. We urge the UN and international community to adopt immediate resolution to protect civilians."
