Peace in Syria

Over 120 humanitarian organizations and United Nations(UN) agencies, issued a joint appeal yesterday, calling for peace in Syria and an end to the suffering endured by millions of civilians. 

The appeal signers included the International Federation of the Red Cross and Red Crescent, UNICEF, Mercy Corps, Islamic Relief Worldwide, International Medical Corp, Save the Children, the Norwegian Refugee Council, Oxfam and many others. They called upon the powers that be to end the suffering in the Levant, while they urged people worldwide to add their voices to call for an end to the suffering of some 13.5 million people inside Syria who need humanitarian assistance.

"In the name of our shared humanity...for the sake of the millions of innocents who have already suffered so much...and for the millions more whose lives and futures hang in the balance, we call for action now," the joint appeal read.

As a token of humanity, the humanitarians outlined key measures that could immediately be put in place in Syria to facilitate a coming peace: unimpeded and sustained access for humanitarian organizations to bring relief to those in need within Syria; humanitarian pauses and unconditional monitored ceasefires to allow food and other relief goods to be delivered to civilians; a cessation of attacks on civilian infrastructure so that schools, hospitals and water supplies are kept safe; and freedom of movement for all civilians and the immediate lifting of all sieges by all parties.

Yet, while most of humanity supports an immediate peace in Syria, the prospect for an immediate peace to the 13.5 million people is marred by Russia's recent involvement into the conflict, and by Vladimir Putin's attempt to name opposition figures to proposed peace talks over the objection and sovereignty of an umbrella Syrian opposition alliance. Therefore, just as Putin's actions have hindered real peace in Ukraine, Russia will continue to muddy Syria's hopes to peace.
