Homs Evacuation Begins!0
By - Posted 4th July, 2015 at 9:34 pm

The Red Cross recently started to evacuate endangered women and children from Syrian city Homs.

On Friday, the Red Cross began their operations to remove vulnerable civilians from the devastated city of Homs, in Syria, a month after the army began bombing the area. Thousands are still trapped under rubble in the Baba Amr suburb, including 2 British news reporters (fortunately, they are not Habbox reporters).

International forces are also currently trying to push President Bashar al-Assad into submission, and allow other political parties to run in elections. 3 Arab Red Crescent ambulances were deployed yesterday and rescued approximately 20 women and children worst hit by the government’s attacks.

A spokesperson from the ICRC (International Committee of the Red Cross) had this to say on the matter: “We’re discussing again who we can get out and how we can get them out and when we can get them out – focusing on the most seriously injured as a priority.

However, there are some officials who believe that, as the rescue vehicles represent a sub-division of the Syrian Army, some of the public would rather not get into them. The ICRC accepted the Syrian Arab Red Cross into their ranks decades ago, but there is still a bad aura about them. A British activist, Abdul Omar spoke to the BBC: “We know that the Syrian regime has in the past used Red Crescent ambulances to pretend that they are rescue operations but they have ended up arresting individuals, arresting civilians and taking them to prison.

What do you think? Are you one of the rescuers helping the trapped Syrians? Or do you have to watch from afar? Do you think that President al-Assad’s actions are immoral? Or going to secure his presidency? Leave your thoughts below!
