So much has happened in #Syria in the past week – world leaders must end their silence in the face of terrifying developments and the suffering of civilians across the country. Turning a blind eye to all these atrocities only gives the regime a green light to commit more. THREAD #Daraa al-Balad has seen its autonomy crushed in the past days following 79 days of siege & heavy attack. Citizens now face additional military checkpoints, house searches & the threat of arrest for expressing opposition to the regime. 38k people remain displaced from their homes

“The corona situation here is very bad” says a doctor in Damascus who remains anonymous for their safety. As hospitals overflow with COVID patients, the official number claimed by the Syrian regime & WHO is only 1432. Greatly at odds with the reported situation on the ground. 1/4 Image “As a doctor if I speak up, I will get bullied by Assad’s supporters and I will get intimidated by security, but we can’t remain silent anymore, people are dying here. Cases of COVID-19 infections and deaths are increasing drastically in regime-held areas..." 2/4

While people around the world are told to wash their hands, people in overcrowded camps in #Idlib and Greece have no access to soap & water The ceasefire in #Idlib must be protected and more than a million IDPs need to be able to return home.

In Response To @RogerWaters: Last week Waters made a false and disgraceful claim that the White Helmets, Syria’s first responders, staged the April 7 2018 chemical attack on the city of Douma. 1/ Waters' use of his platform and his privilege as a celebrity, white man and millionaire to smear Syrian rescue workers is disgraceful and has serious consequences for the protection of humanitarian workers who are being deliberately targeted by the Syrian regime and Russia 2/
