Statement delivered by Dr Joanne Liu, International President of MSF

Palais des Nations, Geneva, 18-02-2016
 
Today in Syria, the abnormal is now normal.  The unacceptable is accepted.
Relentless, brutal, and targeted attacks on civilians are the dominant feature of this war. In addition to the countless numbers of dead, hundreds of thousands of people are fleeing for their lives. Many of them trapped, and denied the fundamental right to flight.
