ICRC voices concern over Syrian civilians in southern Syria

ICRC voices concern over Syrian civilians in southern Syria
IRAN  - The International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) is concerned about the safety of tens of thousands of civilians caught in the line of fire or are fleeing violence in the southern governorate of Daraa.

"We urgently call on all sides fighting in Daraa, Sweida and Quneitra to show restraint and to do their utmost to spare civilians, those no longer participating in the hostilities, and infrastructure essential to their survival," said the ICRC regional director for the Near and Middle East, Robert Mardini. 

"We are receiving reports about people fleeing as the frontlines shift," added Mr. Mardini. 

"We ask those fighting and neighboring countries to facilitate civilians' access to safety and essential services, including life-saving medical care. Civilians should, as always, have options to flee the violence and seek refuge and protection.' 

The ICRC stands ready to provide urgent relief to the displaced, including care for the wounded.
