UN: Syria war causing great civilian strife

Published: 02.05.13, 14:35 / Israel News

The United Nations said that the humanitarian crisis in Syria has reached "catastrophic" proportions, with some 2.5 million people in the war-ravaged country lacking enough food.


Jens Laerke, a spokesman for the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs, said that continued fighting could push up the numbers of those affected by the fighting. He said some 4 million people are in need of urgent assistance now while over 2 million people are displaced inside Syria. Those numbers will go up significantly if the fighting continues, he said.
