UN provides food and medicines to the starving village in Syria, civil war continues to haunt the country
Food and medicines supplies for three months was provided to more than 40,000 people living in the city of Madaya at western Syria as the civil war intensified. The government forces have trapped these people in the middle of town without any aid. The independent UN investigator interviewed people and they told him that how they were deprived of essential commodities by the Army.
UN war crime investigator told press that blocking food and medicines supply is a violation of international convention. He further added that people have been starved to death due to this inhuman act in Syria. Another UN official noted that there were many malnourished children with barely any skin on the skeletons. He inspected the swift delivery of aid to Madaya.
Residents of Madaya now have direct contact with the UN commission of inquiry. The commission was set up to investigate war crimes during the civil war in the country. The condition of human life is degrading in Maldaya due to lack of medicine, doctors, water and food.
The inquiry commission has already prepared the list of war criminals in Syria. The UN has already protested the use of starvation as a weapon in the war torn country. Though the list remains classified, names of units and people from all sides of Syrian conflict are expected.
The commission condemned the attacks on civilian population and torturing them by denying essential services to survive. The rebels in the Syria are also denying supply of food and medicines to the government held villages due to prolonged civil war.
