EfCCNa endorse SIAARTI statement about the war in Syria
October 10, 2016
The European federation of Critical Care Nurses association (EfCCNa) fully endorses the SIAARTI’s statement about the war in Syria [http://www.siaarti.it/SiteAssets/News/statement-siaarti-guerrain-siria/SIAARTI%20-%20Statement%20Syria%20-%20en.pdf]. The federation, representing 28 national associations of critical care, emergency and anaesthesiology nurses is acutely aware of the horror of the civilian tragedy generated by the war. It is deeply saddened by the fatalities from ongoing bombing of civilian buildings including hospitals in Syria as well as the many deaths of civilians attempting to cross the Mediterranean to reach safety.
We firmly share the concerns and the opinion of SIAARTI that this is morally unacceptable. The EfCCNa also joins the united call to all Governments to make strenuous efforts to uphold the principles of the Convention of Geneva that civilians should never be considered as military targets.
