star this property answer text <p>​We are gravely concerned by the escalation in military action by Russia and the Syrian regime in Idlib. We are appalled that civilian infrastructure has been hit, including 24 health facilities, and by reports of civilian casualties and mass displacement. We are using public statements, diplomatic relationships and international fora, including the UN Security Council, to increase the pressure on all parties to end the violence, return to the ceasefire agreed in September 2018 and abide by their obligations under international humanitarian law. Through the Conflict, Stability and Security Fund, the UK is supporting innovative new technology that provides civilians in Idlib with early warnings of airstrikes in order to save lives. We also continue to support international efforts to document violations of international humanitarian law being committed in Idlib.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>We have repeatedly pressed the Syrian regime and its backers, Russia and Iran, to abide by their obligations under Resolution 2401. At the UN Human Rights Council we secured a UK-proposed resolution calling for the Resolution's full and immediate implementation. Following the liberation of Raqqa in October 2017, we provided a further £10 million in humanitarian aid to support people in Raqqa and Deir ez-Zour, including for de-mining. The UK will be providing additional funding to support mine action organisations in Syria, in line with the Government's announcement that it will treble its global Mine Action spending to £100 million by 2020.</p> more like this
