Damascus , 3 July 2016
Syrian Arab Red Crescent (SARC) convoy came under fire on their way back from Rural Damascus on Wednesday, June 28, 2016. The teams were on a mission delivering humanitarian relief aid to Zamalka and Erbeen areas when their car was shot and had one of the staff hit though SARC’s emblem was clearly shown on mentioned car.
The Syrian Arab Red Crescent calls on all parties to respect SARC emblem, to provide protection for SARC teams and enable them to carry out their humanitarian missions, which aimed to alleviate sufferings of the most vulnerable people.
It is worth to mention that SARC teams work in commitment with the fundamental principles of the Intentional Movement of the Red Cross Red crescent.
