The UN has developed evacuation plans, and designated hospitals in Northern Syria, which could take the wounded. But these plans are not implemented because the region’s intense fighting.

Currently the UN includes medicines and medical equipment and is again ready to send them in Eastern Aleppo, ” says Dr. Brennan, however, that humanitarian aid can not reach the city.

“We ask about four things,” says Dr. Brennan. — To stop the killing. Stop attacks on medical facilities. Let’s get the sick and wounded. And give medical aid to enter the city.” The situation in Eastern Aleppo, he will describe it as “unimaginable”. That is to say, the bare minimum, but as needed. “Our message is very simple. We hope that this time our appeal will not fall on deaf ears” — so ends his statement, the UN representative, Dr. Brennan. Week week alike. Maybe the current week will not be like the previous one, and hell Eastern Aleppo will open for a new UN assistance? At least for the sake of innocent children.
