Lives at risk “every minute that passes” in besieged Eastern Ghouta

Close to 400,000 civilians continue to be in urgent need of humanitarian assistance in Syria’s besieged Eastern Ghouta, said the UN on Monday.

Fighting has intensified and humanitarian agencies have not been able to provide lifesaving food or medical supplies, since 28th of November.

The UN continues to call for a ceasefire to allow aid to flow in, as well as access to evacuate the critically-ill.
