The United Nations has warned of a disastrous humanitarian situation in Syria’s Yarmouk Camp, a residential area home to Palestinian refugees and Syrians.
There are reports that five people have starved to death in the neighbourhood.
Yarmouk has been a stronghold for opposition forces for more than a year. The UN Relief Agency for Palestine Refugees has called for an immediate humanitarian corridor to access the people trapped inside.
