Aviation Engineers Call for Parachutes to be used for Aid, Not Bombs, in Aleppo

December 2, 2016

Aviation engineers Abdulrahman and Amr Shayah from Aleppo are calling for parachutes to be used to distribute aid rather than bombs to the city. "These engineers believe there's a safe way to deliver food and medical aid to the people of Aleppo, who have been suffering under a siege for over 100 days," said Shattuck Center Fellow AlHakam Shaar.

Abdulrahman and Amr Shayah argue for a Joint Precision Airdrop System (JPADS) as a means to provide humanitarian and medical assistance to Aleppo residents. Read their article on the Aleppo Project blog here.
