Chemical weapons are not killing and injuring most children, the chief executive of Save the Children said today, after the United Nations voted unanimously on a Syria resolution.
Justin Forsyth said:
The fact that the Security Council can reach an agreement on Syria's chemical weapons is very welcome, but chemical weapons are not killing and injuring most children. We now need action by the UN Security Council to get aid to children cut off in Syria.
With winter just around the corner, now more than ever, children need food, medicine and shelter. This must be the world's number one priority for Syria.
