"Many warring parties in Syria, including ISIL, take advantage of the world's focus on the Covid-19 pandemic to regroup and engage in violence against the population," Bachelet said in a statement, calling it a "time bomb that cannot be ignored."
"Countless families have been shocked and cities, villages and homes were destroyed," Bachelet said, and she joined the voice of United Nations Secretary-General António Guterres to call for a ceasefire.
"I call on all those who continue to fight, kill and push the exhausted and besieged Syrians to flee, to withdraw and to give peace a chance," she said.
Since 9 October 2019, the Turkish occupation army and mercenary groups have continued to attack areas of northeast Syria.
The SDF has welcomed the international calls for a cessation of hostilities and a focus on countering the spread of the Corona virus.
