Syria: ‘Catastrophe’ looms in Idlib if violence escalates, says WFP spokeswoman

If fighting around the rebel-held Syrian enclave of Idlib escalates, with 300,000 already forced to flee their homes, a humanitarian “catastrophe” could well ensue.

That’s according to World Food Programme (WFP) Spokesperson, Marwa Awad, who warns in an interview with UN News that depression and anger is now widespread across the region.

The majority of displaced are moving towards the northern border with Turkey, where humanitarian camps are stretched beyond capacity and “families are living on top of each other”.
