United Nations Warns of Crisis as Syrian Forces Squeeze Aleppo
« on: February 10, 2016, 10:49:25 AM »

The United Nations warned Tuesday that if pro-government forces in Syria succeed in encircling the strategic city of Aleppo then up to 300,000 people could be cut off from humanitarian aid.

In an assessment of the situation in Aleppo, the U.N. said the Aleppo offensive has already cut rebel supply lines between the eastern part of the city and the Bab al-Salam crossing on the Turkish border.

Further advances into the city could send another 100,000 to 150,000 civilians fleeing Aleppo.

The World Food Program said Tuesday it is distributing urgently needed meals to 21,000 people who fled Aleppo to A'zaz, just south of the Turkish border.
