The humanitarian officials urged the U.N. Security Council to take bold steps in order to end the crisis at Syria whereby millions of people die, suffer sexual violation, get wounded and are forced to evacuate in search of a safe region.



Unites States – 26 April 2015 – The Senior U.N. humanitarian officials address the “Security Council” of the United Nations on the 24th April 2015, in regards to end the “Syrian crisis”. According to them the “numbness to the senseless violence” should terminate. Therefore, the “Security Council” demanded “expanded aid” in order to conduct emergency operation for supplying “life-saving” provisions to remote and “hard-to-reach” regions.
 
Valerie Amos, the United Nations’ “Secretary-General for Humanitarian Affairs and Emergency Relief Coordinator”, while addressing the body of fifteen members in an open-brief, he pointed out, in an alarming tone, that:
“...people have become numb to figures that should, every day, shock our collective conscience.”
 
Amos informs that during last “tragic five-year arc of conflict”, almost two hundred twenty thousand people died rather have been murdered, while “one million” were injured along with 7.6 Million were displaced and “four million” took shelter in “neighbouring countries”. The United Nations News Centre writes:
“In the past weeks alone, well over 100,000 people were displaced in a new wave of fighting in Idlib.”
 
The other members who attended the address session were U.N.H.C.R, António Guterres, the U.N.H.C.R's Special-Envoy, Angelina Jolie Pitt, and the executive director of United Nation’s W.F.P, Ertharin Cousin. They all in unison matched Amos’ plea for ending “atrocity after atrocity; violation after violation; misery after misery”.
 
A “Presidential Statement” on the Syrian Crisis was reportedly adopted by the “Security Council” whereby they demanded “an end to all forms of violence” from any parties who are in “Syrian domestic conflict”. As per the Council, they termed the “Syrian crisis” as “the largest humanitarian emergency crisis” in the present world which is a brooding threat to the security and peace issues in the neighbouring nations could translate into “diverse implications”; furthermore millions of people may also need to displace themselves if any corrective measures aren’t taken immediately.
 
The displacement means added pressure on the host country to manage resources including education, and financial support. Amos also emphasized the need of action on the part of Security Council for:
“There are fresh allegations that chemical weapons have been used again in Idlib, killing and injuring civilians,”
 
Amid the survival struggle people are being deprived of medical aids which need to be rectified soon and all violation should be brought to an end for the so far failure has eroded “the credibility of the Council. Thus, Amos urged to the Council:
“...Stop the violations of international law, protect civilians and ensure humanitarian access,”
 
Amos says that the solution to Syrian crisis can be arrived at through “political dialogue”. However, further delay to sort the matter cause “potential global repercussions”, whereby she asked the Council “to match its scale with an equally bold response”. In fact Mr. Guterres stresses on the point that support system needs to be increase in the Syrian neighbouring countries to reduce “host fatigue”.
 
Other issues brought up in the meeting were about reduced healthcare and food supply. The failure to provide these essentials was termed as “lack of political will”. Moreover, the years of inaction from the part of the Council had turned Syrians hope to anger and now to despair and hopelessness.
