KUWAITI MPS URGE IMMEDIATE INTERNATIONAL INTERVENTION IN ALEPPO

KUWAIT, Kuwaiti members of parliament Wednesday called on the international community to intervene immediately to halt “reported massacres” in the Syrian city of Aleppo.

They made the call during a peaceful protest before the Russian Embassy in Kuwait against the backdrop of the ongoing tragic situation in Aleppo.

Speaking to reporters during the protest, the deputies urged major countries, UN bodies, Arab League and Organization of Islamic Cooperation to halt bloodshed, protect civilians and allow relief aid to people in the violence-torn Syrian city.

During their rally, they asked these organizations to use their authorities and power to hold urgent meetings in order to put an end to human rights violations in the city, to implement a ceasefire and to ensure safe civilian evacuation.

The disgruntled deputies hoisted banners denouncing intervention by “some states” in Aleppo by launching airstrikes and breaching civilians’ human rights.

The besieged Syrian city of Aleppo has been under stiff attacks by Syrian government forces and their allied militias, sparking wide-scale Arab and international outrage.

Earlier on Tuesday, the UN Security Council (UNSC) held an emergency session upon France and UK request against the tragic backdrop in Aleppo.

UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon appealed to those who have the influence and the power to alleviate the suffering of the people of Aleppo.

Qatar called Tuesday for an emergency meeting of the Arab League Council at the level of permanent delegates to discuss the tragic situation in the Syrian city of Aleppo.

Today, the State of Kuwait has called for holding an extraordinary Arab ministerial meeting next Monday to discuss the “tragic conditions” in the war-torn city.
