Statement by Panos Moumtzis, Regional Humanitarian Coordinator for the Syria Crisis on Civilians and Humanitarian Workers Being Killed and Ongoing Suffering
Gaziantep, 21 June 2019​

I am shocked and appalled by reports of an incident yesterday in which a female patient and three paramedic staff were killed when the ambulance they were travelling in to Maarat Al-Numan main hospital, in Idleb, was hit by a strike. I offer my sincere condolences to the families, loved ones and colleagues of these victims. Hundreds of civilians have been killed and thousands injured in the last few weeks..............
