No now the family of a victim of Isis grooming is responsible for bringing her grandchild home home
Makes you wonder why we have British Embassy or United Nations?


We do not and they do not have a diplomatic presence in Syria!
In February 2012 all diplomatic staff were withdrawn from the British Embassy in Damascus and its services were suspended. There is now no ambassador.
On 25 July 2012 Under-Secretary-General for Peacekeeping Operations Hervé Ladsous announced that about half of the military observers have been sent back to their countries.On August 16, France's UN Ambassador Gerard Araud, the current Security Council president, said the conditions to extend the mission in Syria beyond August 20, among which a significant reduction of violence, were not met and the mission would end.
Aid missions have continued.
More than 13 million people inside Syria require humanitarian assistance, including nearly 6 million children.
At the end of 2017, more than half the country’s hospitals, clinics and primary health care centres were only partially functioning or had been damaged beyond repair.
