The Syrian government, backed by Russia, is bombing its own people in Eastern Ghouta. Scores of people have been killed and hundreds injured in the past month. The area has been under siege for some six years. No one can escape to safety, and humanitarian aid including food and medical supplies can’t get in. Children and elderly people are dying of malnutrition and lack of medication. The daily barrage of attacks is a flagrant war crime.
Amnesty helped draw attention to the crisis in Aleppo. It’s time to help the people under attack in Eastern Ghouta.
