(OHCHR) – “We are inside a holocaust; we do not see any light at the end of the tunnel.” These are the words used by Dr. Abd Arrahamn Alomar to describe the current predicament of the Syrian people. Alomar is a paediatrician in Syria serving in particularly vulnerable cities including Aleppo. He was speaking during a side on prevention of child morality and human rights held on 26 September during the 33rd session of the human rights council in Geneva. “The situation in Syria is desperate. It is a deliberate deprivation of the right to life and the right to health,” he explains.
