UN warns of dire humanitarian situation in Madaya


Publicado originalmente em: 14/01/2016

A second convoy of aid has left the Syrian capital Damascus for the town of Madaya which is under the control of foreign-backed militants.
Fifty trucks carrying international aid have left the capital Damascus for the town where more than two dozen people are reported to have starved to death.

The first shipment was sent earlier this week. Aid organizations say the situation in Madaya is extremely dire.

Aid convoys have also been dispatched to the towns of Fu’ah and Kafriya in Idlib countryside which are besieged by the militants.

Trucks of the International Committee of the Red Cross and the UN are now on the edges of the towns waiting for the green light to enter.

According to UN estimates, more than four-and-a-half million Syrians, living in besieged or hard-to-reach areas, are in desperate need of humanitarian aid and medical supplies to survive.
