Starvation kills children in Damascus

While Syria is suffering from violent civil war in last 2, 5 years, the country becomes the worst place for children especially. Those Syrian kids who escaped the bombardments now facing serious malnutrition problems as dozens of children die every day in Suburban areas of Syrian capital city of Damascus.

Scarcity of staple food and medical stuff is at its highest level in suburban Damascus as the area became the battlefield for the civil war among Bashar al-Asad's regime and opposition forces. Suburbs are under tight blockade due to fierce battles and everyday dozens of children die not because of bullets and shells but malnutrition. Almost every child in war zone suffers from loss of weight and parents are in desperate straits.

Stop the sanctions put pressure on European governments and politicians to stop behaving like idiots ad to lift the sanctions against Syria. As if they didn't remember what happened in Iraq when more than half a million children died from sanction related shortages of food and medicines. It's criminal- so go lobby today.
