In light of the Syrian government’s policy to protect its citizens from the acts of the armed terrorist groups, Ministry of Social affairs, in cooperation with Damascus countryside governorate and the Syrian Arab Red Crescent organization, brought 3000 children and women out of Muadamiyet al-Sham who were held hostage by the terrorists.
“This initiative came after the terrorists prevented the humanitarian aid from reaching to the city,” Minister of Social Affairs Kinda al-Shammat said in a press statement on Sunday.
She added that those children and women will be brought to temporary shelters equipped with all basic life needs.
“The Red Crescent has offered the necessary relief and emergency services to the citizens.” the Minister said.
Social Affairs Ministry, Damascus Countryside Governorate and the Syrian Arab Red Crescent on Saturday also transported 2,000 women and children from Muadamiyet al-Sham who had been held hostage by terrorist groups to temporary housing centers.
