The Syrian government, backed by Russian airstrikes, is continuing its offensive in Idlib province—the last major rebel-held part of Syria. Residents and rescue workers say the Syrian government has been dropping barrel bombs on apartment buildings, killing civilians, including children. This is Herve Verhoosel, a spokesperson for the World Food Programme.
Herve Verhoosel: “The single greatest priority must be to end this brutal conflict. WFP appeals to all parties to protect civilians, respect humanitarian principles and allow for the safe delivery of food to families in need, no matter where they are.”
