People get stuck in transit countries without access to asylum. For instance, Turkey systematically deports people to Syria and Afghanistan, where their safety and lives are at stake. Libya is infamous for its human rights violations and hellscape detention camps. 7/
The EU annually invests tens of millions in the border control of autocratic regimes such as Egypt, Morocco, Turkey and Libya without effectively checking whether this money (in)directly contributes to the pushbacks or other violations of these regimes. 6/
Using its UN Security Council veto, the Russian government has allowed only one border crossing for humanitarian aid from Turkey into rebel-controlled Syria. Now that single crossing is closed due to earthquake damage, just when earthquake aid is needed. nytimes.com/live/2023/02/0…
NW #Syria in a state of catastrophe after 7.8 magnitude #earthquake. Destruction, devastation, and collapse of buildings. Hundreds of injuries, dozens of deaths, many trapped under the rubble or stranded in the winter cold. We call on the international community to take action.
Next week Sajid, Khan, Mustafa and Shiro will come to 🇪🇺Parliament.
They walked thousands of km from Afghanistan, Syria and Iraq. In Europe, they walked through minefields and got hit by violent border guards.
✊ On 14 June, together we will ask for protection of all children.
A 🇺🇦 helicopter that can fly to Russia, fire missiles, and fly back undisturbed. That reminds me of Israeli F15s that were able to bomb chemical weapon factories in Syria and experienced no problems as coordinates for Russian air defence systems in Syria were spoofed by hackers

+2Together with other Members of @EUParl_EN from 12 different Members States I just sent a letter the Danish Prime Minister urging him to reconsider the return of #Syrian #Refugees
#Syriaisnotsafe! Sending people back to a regime that kills and tortures is irresponsible.
10 years of civil war in Syria; many people have died, cities are destroyed, hopes have vanished. Over half of Syrians lack food or shelter. Refugees can't go back, but can't build a future in Turkey, Lebanon or Jordan either. We need to take responsibility, in- and outside Syria
Extremely worried about recent reports on alleged heavy Turkish military interference in Nagorno-Karabakh.
We have seen this modus operandi before in Syria & Libya.
Together with colleagues from @RenewEurope I asked HR/VP @josepborrell urgent questions 👇
@ForensicArchi 2️⃣ On the 4th of March, seven people sustained injuries, two of whom have been identified as Mohamad Hantou, from Syria, and Zeeshan Omar, from Pakistan. One person, Muhammad Gulzar, a Pakistani citizen who had until recently lived in Greece, was killed. forensic-architecture.org/investigation/…
Turkish president Erdogan is in trouble in Syria and is trying to put pressure on EU by 'opening the gates'. Unacceptable. EU has to support GR and BG and keep Turkey to its commitments under the EU-Turkey deal. Work for HR/VP Borrell👇👇
👇 The Commission on the conditions under which Turkey is a safe country for refugees. Now that Erdogan aims to send refugees back to Syria, I would like to hear from @avromopoulos next Monday if he really thinks these conditions are still met.

Congratulations to @SyriaCivilDef, who have been awarded the @HolocaustMuseum’s Elie Wiesel Award in recognition of their life-saving work. The White Helmets share this year’s award with Serge and Beate Klarsfeld who helped bring Nazi war criminals to justice
While everybody says there is no military solution to the war in #Syria (also EU line), reality shows there was. Certainly Russian bombardments & other military actions created decisive realities on ground. Drilling down need for political solution doesnt change that #MSC2019
Indeed, unbelievable, and so harmful. I fear we will feel the aftermath of this war for decades to come (of course realizing the bloodshed impacts people in Syria and the MEast first and foremost, Lebanon, Jordan, Turkey see tensions rising around shelter of refugees)
This is really remarkable when you think about it. The Syrian civil war caused a migration crisis that thoroughly upended and destabilized European politics; the aftershocks still threaten the integrity of the EU. But there's still no coherent European response. twitter.com/MarietjeSchaak…
Europe’s absence in negotiating a future peace for Syria, while the impact of that horrendous war is felt throughout our continent, is staggering & should be a call to action towards much more effective foreign and security policy. EU govts lack common position on Syria #MSC2019
