Joint NGO Statement: Ending Unlawful Sieges and Atrocities is a Prerequisite for Syria Peace

5 January 2019

On 22 January a coalition of 15 Syrian, regional and international NGOs, including the Global Centre for the Responsibility to Protect, released a joint statement calling upon parties to the UN-facilitated peace talks to prioritize ending unlawful sieges and other atrocities in Syria. The letter also calls upon on governments with influence over parties to the conflict to insist on an end to unlawful attacks, the targeting of healthcare facilities, the use of explosive weapons in populated areas and the use of banned and indiscriminate weapons such as landmines and cluster munitions.
