UN: ’Catastrophe’ looms in Assad-besieged Syrian cities

The UN on Tuesday warned of a “looming humanitarian catastrophe” in four besieged towns in Syria, calling on the Assad terrorists to allow immediate delivery of humanitarian aid to some 60,000 people in need.

 

“Sixty thousand innocent people are trapped there in a cycle of daily violence and deprivation, where malnutrition and lack of proper medical care prevail,” the United Nations Resident and Humanitarian Coordinator for Syria Ali al-Za’tari said in a statement.

 

“The situation is a looming humanitarian catastrophe. The principle of free access to people in need must be implemented now and without repeated requests.”
