MedGlobal is deeply alarmed by today’s failure of the United Nations Security Council to extend Resolution 2672, which provides essential access and funding for humanitarian aid to Syria. In allowing this support to lapse, the United Nations is abrogating responsibilities and commitments dating back to 2014, at a time when the humanitarian crisis caused by the civil war is compounded by the ongoing impacts of the recent earthquakes. MedGlobal’s personnel have six years of experience on the ground in northwest Syria and can attest that the international community’s ongoing support is more vital now than ever. The United Nations and the broader international community must act urgently to re-authorize funding and support for the Bab al-Hawa border crossing and reaffirm past resolutions and commitments.
