Syria Emergency Appeal (Aleppo)
Hundreds killed in ongoing violence
“The news coming from Eastern Ghouta is one of despair, death and destruction. In the suburb of Damascus, intense mortar attacks and bombings are wiping out the surrounding population.”
In the last two days alone, hundreds have been killed in one the worst bombing attacks since 2013.
The fighting is continuing with no sign of ceasefire.
- More than 300 people killed so far.
- Over 60 children have lost their lives in catastrophic conditions.
- Seven hospitals hit by air strikes and wholly or partially destroyed.
- The highest 48-hour death toll since 2013.
- Over 700 killed in the area in the last 3 months.
The death toll is rising by the hour.
The UN has warned that the situation in Syria is “spiralling out of control”. Children’s’ agency UNICEF has condemned the killings in Eastern Ghouta and issued a blank statement stating “We no longer have the words to describe children’s suffering and our outrage.”
Witnesses and victims report buildings tumbling around them. Bodies lie in the streets and people call out from the destruction in pain and fear, dying from horrific injuries sustained in the attacks. Children are being pulled from the rubble, their lungs full of dust and sand.
This isn’t a horror movie. This is happening in our world right NOW.

It is important that we act now. Over 100,000 lives have been lost in this conflict, and millions have been displaced. We can’t afford to see more lives lost needlessly.
