JORDAN WELCOMES U.N. RESOLUTION CALLING FOR PROVIDING URGENT AID TO SYRIAN REFUGEES

Jordan welcomed a resolution by the UN Security Council, urging Syria to provide urgent aid to the refugees, including those stranded in Rukban area, near the Jordan Syrian border.

Jordan’s Minister of State for Media Affairs, Mohammad Momani, said, the UN resolution is in line with Jordan’s stance, that it is the responsibility of Syria, to provide aid to the Syrians in Rukban.

In the resolution, the UN Security Council expressed its concern about the humanitarian situation of the internally displaced persons in Rukban, while highlighting the need to ensure humanitarian access to the area.

It reiterated its grave distress, at the worsening humanitarian situation in Syria, including in Eastern Ghouta, near the capital Damascus, Idlib governorate, Northern Hama governorate, Rukban and Raqqa.

The council also pointed out that, urgent humanitarian assistance, including medical aid, is required by more than 13.1 million people in Syria, of whom 6.1 million are internally displaced and 2.5 million are living in hard to reach areas.

Momani also welcomed the UN resolution’s call, for an end to the bloodshed in Eastern Ghouta, while calling for a political solution to the crisis in Syria.

In the resolution, the council expressed its outrage at the unacceptable levels of violence escalating in several parts of Syria, in particular in Idlib and Eastern Ghouta, including shelling on diplomatic premises and attacks against civilian targets. It stressed especially, the need to cease all attacks against the civilians and civilian targets, including schools and medical facilities.
