Description : On Friday 18 October 2013, ICRC Head of Delegation in Syria Magne Barth said:
“It’s a very very simple appeal. I appeal from my heart in the name of humanity, on behalf of the families to release our colleagues safe and sound and unharmed.”
The ICRC calls for the immediate release of its three colleagues still held in Syria.
Six ICRC staff members and one Syrian Arab Red Crescent (SARC) volunteer were abducted by unidentified armed men near Sareqeb in Idlib Governorate, in north-western Syria on 13 October.
Three ICRC staff and one SARC volunteer were later released 14 October.
The team had travelled to Idlib on 10 October to assess the medical situation in several Idlib Governorate health structures and to deliver medical supplies in Sarmin and Idlib city. The convoy, which was on its way back to Damascus, was clearly marked with the ICRC emblem, which is not a religious symbol.
