Syria: UN concerned as government attacks intensify

The Syrian regime is continuing its attacks on the rebel-held suburbs of Damascus in spite of calls from governments and the UN for the bombardment to stop.

    Civilians continue to die, victims of the Syrian government’s intensified attacks on rebel-held areas in the Damascus suburb.

    More than 85 civilians have been killed in the past 12 days.

    Speaking on his first visit to Syria, the UN's humanitarian chief, Mark Lowcock, said he's deeply worried about civilians in Idlib and Eastern Ghouta.
