Describing the situation in Syria, French Surgeon Jacques Beres, who had been working undercover in Aleppo, the city that has been under heavy bombardment for weeks by Assad air forces, said “one bomb dropped by the regime leaves more wounded than doctors can fix in a day.” In his interview with AFP, Beres indicated that the actual number of death toll over the 18 months of Syrian uprising exceeds the other reports by human rights organizations, "At least 50,000 people have been killed without counting the disappeared,"
"It is shameful that a no-fly zone hasn't been set up," said the co-founder of Doctors Without Borders, "It is an incredible massacre. Even if now it is a civil war, it is a very asymmetric conflict: light weapons against tanks and aerial bombardment," said Beres, whose experience on the field covers almost every major war from Vietnam in the sixties to Libya last year."All this because they asked for a little bit of freedom and said that they had enough of Bashar."

SEO shares Surgeon Beres the same concerns; we believe the death toll number mentioned in the interview is closer to reality and mandate an immediate action by the UN and humanitarian organizations to implement the “No Fly Zone” and to create a buffer zone in the northern Syria.

Dr Iyad Azrak, SEO chairman said,” We believe that the silence of the world toward Assad’s atrocities in Syria is incomprehensible and shameful. Apparently, the international community inaction strategy is an incentive for Bashar Assad to pursue his mission of massacring Syrians with impunity. We Appreciate Surgeon Beres efforts in humanitarian aid and his courageous statement that highlight the true suffering of people in Syria. We urge the UNSC to adopt the necessary resolution to protect Syrians, which include the “No Fly Zone” as a priority.”
