In the country there are no more besieged areas.
The UN has said that Syria was not one of the besieged area, and that the brutal practice of war is ending, reports the Chronicle.info with reference to Stranaya.
This was stated at a briefing in Geneva adviser to the special envoy of the UN Secretary General on Syria, Jan Egeland.
“Now there are no more areas in Syria, which, according to the UN criteria, are considered to be besieged. The last residents of the besieged areas of al – Fua and Kepra (surrounded by fighters of the Shiite enclaves in Idlib province – Approx.Ed.) – was evacuated in July,” he said.
“We are entering a new Chapter in this very bloody and brutal war in Syria. Hopefully, we now see the end of the great war,” said Egeland. According to him, “there are signs” that you now have access to humanitarian areas, which was not long, and “the cruel practices of this war is coming to an end.” However, the EA drew attention to the risk of aggravation of the situation in Idlib province. “In Idlib there may be thousands of people who are named terrorists by the UN,” he said.
According to Egeland, the presence of terrorists speaks about the danger of escalation of the situation in this province, but it “cannot justify” to deploy in Idlib fighting. The adviser believes that it is necessary to do everything possible to “the war came in Idlib” because half of the 9.2 million residents of the province displaced.
According to him, the UN is preparing a humanitarian plan in case of aggravation of the situation in Idlib.
“Idlib is not removed from the agenda of international politics. Many States can affect the situation in Idlib,” said the adviser.
