Humanitarian Diplomacy in Syria

We also play an active role on the field with our humanitarian diplomacy operations in Syria. Civilians who were stranded in Aleppo that was besieged by the Syrian regime at the end of 2016, and were even denied access to humanitarian aid, were confronted with a major massacre. Upon the appeal and organization by IHH, more than 5 thousand vehicles and 40 thousand passengers took part in the convoy that set out with the slogan “Open the Road to Aleppo” with the aim of opening a humanitarian corridor in Aleppo. As a result of the humanitarian diplomacy negotiations held by Turkey together with IHH, United Nations (UN) and other organizations, 45 thousand people were evacuated to safe regions.

Throughout the convoy’s journey, 1.208 aid trucks were prepared all over Turkey to sent to the oppressed in Aleppo. This aid, together with the emergency aid materials transported by the participants, was distributed to the refugees that were evacuated to safe zones via hundreds of IHH volunteers. Among the aid materials delivered to the tent cities that were recently set up by IHH, there was basic food needs, cleaning products, winter clothing and footwear, blankets and tents.

The convoy that gains a huge response among the world public, was also on the agenda of United Nations. Referring to the ceasefire and evacuation in Syria, Jan Egeland, advisor to UN Special Representative to Syria, said “Turkish NGOs, in particular IHH has achieved major success in this evacuation operation. IHH has achieved a great deal.”

IHH played a active role in the exchange of 48 Iranian citizens and the release of 2.130 Syrians imprisoned by the Syria regime in 2013, and the exchange of 464 injured captives in al-Fu’ah and al-Zabadani.
