CADUS employees attacked in Northeast Syria!

Once again international law was violated by Turkey and its allies: rescue forces were shot at.

The driver of the ambulance and our medical staff are seriously injured, but fortunately not in critical condition. The urgently needed ambulance is no longer operational.

The rescue team was located north of Tal Tamer outside the active combat zone and was on its way to rescue the injured. There they were shot at.

We strongly condemn attacks of any kind on humanitarian aid and rescue workers and call on Turkey and its allies to abide by the rules of the Geneva Conventions and to punish violations. Furthermore, the international community must act in such clear breaches of the law and no longer remain inactive. Sanctions are required!

Our thoughts are with the two injured and their families. We stand in solidarity with them and our colleagues who risk their lives every day to save others!

  • Die Ereignisse in Paris haben auch uns am Wochenende wieder sprachlos zurückgelassen. Ebenso wie die Anschläge in Beirut, Baghdad, im Yemen, in Taiz, in Mokha, in Nairobi; und diese Liste ist nicht abschließend.
