6531st Meeting (AM & PM)
Top Humanitarian, Human Rights, Peacekeeping Officials Brief Members amid Concerns over Escalating Violence, Indiscriminate Use of Force
The unprecedented crises in the Middle East and parts of North and sub-Saharan Africa over the last six months drove home the need for the Security Council to implement its five resolutions intended to protect civilians trapped in the crossfire of armed conflict, the top United Nations humanitarian official said today.
I will focus my remarks today on the pressing need to ensure more effective protection for civilians in the conduct of hostilities.
The deliberate targeting of civilians or other flagrant disregard for well-being in violation of international humanitarian law during hostilities results in hundreds killed, injured, maimed and traumatised every week. Recent events in Libya and Cote d’Ivoire are the latest examples of this, but other situations also demand our attention.
The situation deteriorated in Sudan (Northern) as both North and South appear to be militarising Abyei ahead of the South Kordofan elections scheduled for May. Tensions triggered militia attacks in el-Faid town leaving at least seventeen dead and over 250 houses burned. President Bashir’s removal of Salah Gosh from the national security committee signalled growing divisions within the ruling party.
