Daraya Council call on the UK to deliver humanitarian air drops
Following #Women4Syria’s statement in support of the women of Daraya, Saturday’s demonstration at Downing Street calling for air drops, and today’s protest at the MBDA missile factory calling for bread not bombs, the Local Council of Daraya City issued the following statement:
We call on the UK government to play a vital humanitarian role in Syria. Let history remember that the UK contributed in breaking the siege and delivering humanitarian aid into the besieged areas via all possible means. This includes humanitarian airdrops instead of paying millions of pounds in order to bomb Syrian regions.
