MOSCOW (Sputnik) – Al-Jarallah, cited by the agency, stressed that airstrikes on Aleppo deteriorated the humanitarian situation in the city.
"Everybody realizes the scale of the ordeal being undergone by the brotherly Syrian people for more than five years while the international community remained inactive and unable to put an end to this tragedy," Deputy Foreign Minister Khaled Al-Jarallah told Kuwait TV as cited by KUNA news agency.
According to KUNA, the emergency meetings are expected to be held at the level of permanent delegates.
Aleppo has been under siege by militant groups, including Jaish al-Islam, Ahrar ash-Sham and Jabhat Fatah al Sham, formerly known as the al-Nusra Front. The city has seen intense fighting over the past few months, with the Syrian army and local militia forces managing to encircle large groups of militants in the eastern districts of the city.
Syria has been mired in civil war since 2011, with government forces loyal to President Bashar Assad fighting numerous opposition groups, as well as terrorist formations. As a result over 4.8 million citizens fled Syria, most of them to neighboring countries.
