The reconciliation centre: militants seize border crossing for humanitarian corridor in Eastern ghouta

EAST GHOUTA /Syria/, 3 March. /TASS/. Militants artificially complicate the humanitarian situation in the Damascus suburb of East ghouta and conduct searches in the houses of civilians for the seizure of their flyers Center reconciliation of the warring parties in Syria, which pass through a humanitarian corridor, told reporters on Saturday the representative of the centre the General-major Vladimir Zolotukhin.

“According to information obtained by the Centre for reconciliation of the warring parties from the Syrian side members of illegal armed groups in Eastern ghouta carry out mass searches in the homes of local residents by removing their flyers Centre for reconciliation. Along the way, the bandits also deprive people of food, thus artificially complicating the humanitarian situation in the region”, – said Zolotukhin.

According to the instructions contained in the leaflets, a man crossing a humanitarian corridor needs to keep her high above his head in one hand, the other hand holding the baby, or put it on his head. This is done in order to prevent the passage through the corridor of armed militants.

According to Zolotukhin, just in the area of East Huta was thrown about 100 thousand leaflets.

In the village of El Vafidin the Syrian authorities with the support of the Russian Center for reconciliation of the warring parties prepared the conditions for the reception of the civilian population through a single humanitarian corridor that links Damascus with Eastern Ghouta.
