Molloy urges international community to address humanitarian crisis in north eastern Syria

Sinn Féin MP Francie Molloy has said the EU and the wider international community need to act urgently to address the worsening humanitarian situation caused by the Turkish military onslaught against the Kurds.

The Mid Ulster MP said:

“There is a growing humanitarian crisis in north eastern Syria as a result of the Turkish onslaught against the Kurdish people.

“Tens of thousands of people have been forced to flee from their homes as a result of Turkish military attacks.

“And for Turkey to threaten to use the plight of Syrian refugees as a pawn is both cynical and a disgrace.

“The international community, and the EU in particular, needs to act to address the rapidly deteriorating humanitarian situation and to challenge Turkish military aggression.”
