Syrian fight against polio
Vaccination programme has to be expanded

December 2013

The World Health Organisation recently reported that 13 cases of the dangerous and highly contagious disease poliomyelitis had been discovered in Syria. In the embattled province of Deir-ez-Zor in the East of Syria alone, more than ten children have been diagnosed with polio.

A polio epidemic in Syria would be an unimaginable disaster for large parts of the population! The WHO must do everything possible to prevent a spread of polio. It must not make itself dependent upon any warring faction. The fight against polio is apolitical; vaccination has to be possible for every single child in Syria!

As eyewitnesses had informed the human rights organization by phone, Al-Nusra fighters are approaching the small, predominantly Christian inhabited town in the district of Hama in central Syria, after jihadist of the terror organization "Islamic State" (IS) left the region a few days ago.

German Vice-Chancellor Sigmar Gabriel emphasized that only legitimate governments should be able to receive weapons form Germany. This, however, would also mean that the minority groups in Northern Iraq would by no means be able to obtain German weapons to defend themselves against the incipient genocide.
