The Syrian government must guarantee the safety of humanitarian aid workers and grant unfettered access to conflict zones within the country, Commissioner Georgieva said today.


The Humanitarian Aid Commissioner was speaking after being briefed on the death of Mohammed Khadra, a first-aid volunteer with the Syrian Arab Red Crescent, who was killed while trying to save the lives of others in Douma, near Damascus. The circumstances of his death are still unclear.


"The continuing violence is fuelling a humanitarian crisis with ever growing needs that must be urgently addressed. I appeal to the Government of Syria to cooperate with the international humanitarian organisations and allow greater and unhindered access for international humanitarian aid workers".



Since the beginning of 2011, Syria has been experiencing violent unrest opposing anti-government street protesters and the security forces. According to the United Nations, killings and human rights violations in Syria have resulted in more than 11,000 deaths. It is estimated that between 1.5 and 3 million people are affected by the violence.


More than 47,000 people have already sought refuge in neighbouring countries, mainly Turkey, Lebanon and Jordan, but also to Iraq and Libya. Host countries have been working to meet the basic needs of refugees and to ensure their protection.
