Drop Food – Not Bombs – on Syria!

Tuesday, while the eyes of this nation were focused on the Republican convention, U.S. airstrikes in the northern Syrian ISIL-controlled city of Manbij killed at least 56 civilians, injuring dozens more. The Syrian Observatory said 11 children were among those killed.

This airstrike is one in hundreds of U.S. strikes that have taken the lives of countless Syrian civilians. As bombings by the US-coalition, the Assad government and Russia continue to devastate the already war-torn country, innocent Syrians suffer severely from a lack of clean water, electricity, medical care, and food. In Manbij, 70,000 people are trapped between warring parties, with no access to food or supplies. To help this besieged population, the United States should drop food, not bombs.

We call on President Obama to deliver humanitarian aid and assistance to Syria and to immediately call off the bombing campaign that has already caused the death of at least 167 Syrian civilians.

    Every month dozens of innocent people, including children, die in foreign led (US-led coalition, and the Russia-Iran coalition) as well as Syrian government airstrikes in Syria. There is no doubt as international citizens of the planet we have to fight terrorism everywhere. However, fear of terrorism does not justify the killing of innocent people, for me. If it does, it does not make me any different from a terrorist sympathizer.

    I think we need to do something to tell President Obama the right thing to stop those airstrikes on our Syrian civilians because everyone is getting sick & tired of the fighting that’s happening in our homeland. Plus many people are leaving Syria to escape the fighting, but the conditions aren’t even the same. That’s why the President needs to act & stop the bombings now & call on aid to help these people, otherwise ISIL will continue fighting for a long time to come.
