Written by

SNP Westminster Leader Angus Robertson MP has appealed to the Prime Minister to help the people of Syria.

Speaking in Prime Minister’s Questions, Angus Robertson MP asked what the UK and international community can do to end the suffering of people in Syria.

Commenting, Angus Robertson MP said:

“The situation in the besieged city of Aleppo is so bad it could be one of the biggest massacres of civilian population since World War II.

“It is very welcome that the UN Security Council is discussing Syria to consider what can actually be done to alleviate the suffering of people in Syria. But things are so bad that aid agencies say Aleppo is experiencing a "descent into hell."

“Can I appeal to the Prime Minister, time is of the essence - please can everything be done to help the people of Aleppo and Syria.”
