“The White Helmet”
When the bombs rain down, the Syrian Civil Defence rushes in. In a place where public services no longer function these unarmed volunteers risk their lives to help anyone in need – regardless of their religion or politics. Known as the White Helmets these volunteer rescue workers operate in the most dangerous place on earth.
As the conflict in Syria worsens, ordinary people are paying the highest price. More than 50 bombs and mortars a day land on some neighbourhoods in Syria. Many are rusty barrels filled with nails and explosives, rolled out the back of government helicopters — bakeries and markets are the most commonly hit targets. When this happens the White Helmets rush in to search for life in the rubble – fully aware that more bombs may fall on the same site. These volunteers have saved 60,000 lives – and this number is growing daily.
The UN Security Council passed Resolution 2139 in 2014 which banned barrel bombs and other indiscriminate weapons. They promised to take further steps if their resolution was violated. More than two years later, thousands of more barrel bombs have been dropped, killing thousands of more children. The Council didn’t act.
In 2015, they passed another resolution banning the use of chlorine as a chemical weapon. They said if chemical attacks continue, they would take action under the “Chapter VII” of the UN charter – which would allow them to use force to protect civilians.
The have been dozens of chemical attacks since the Security Council spoke. By failing to act, Security Council members are emboldening the killers. Now the White Helmets are calling on them to follow through on their demands and stop the chlorine and stop the bombs.
Here is a video of how these men run around in the city saving lives of many.
