A staff member from a Syrian organisation that Humanity and Inclusion (HI) partners with was killed yesterday. Mustafa, his wife and their two children – both under the age of 8 years old – were killed by shelling in Hamouriyeh, Eastern Ghouta. As today marks the 7th anniversary of the Syrian conflict, HI condemns once again bombing and shelling of populated areas and calls on all parties to the conflict to protect civilians.
390,000 civilians are besieged under heavy shelling, airstrikes, and barrel bomb attacks in the enclave of Eastern Ghouta, with dwindling water, food, and medical supplies.
