War displacing million more Syrians this year, food shortage ahead

A senior UN official has warned that one million more Syrians will flee their homes by the end of the year if ongoing violence persists in the Arab country. 'There are a million people displaced this year and the projection is another million will be displaced inside Syria between now and the end of the year if the violence continues to escalate,' said Yacoub El Hillo, the UN humanitarian coordinator in Syria, on Saturday.”

Raising the alarm about shortage of food for Syrians, El Hillo said that the World Food Program will have 'zero dollars to provide food to 5 million people inside Syria' as of November. The foreign-sponsored conflict in Syria, which flared up in March 2011, has claimed more than 250,000 lives up until now, according to reports.”

The United Nations says the militancy, which has escalated due to operations by Takfiri terrorists groups such as Daesh, has also displaced more than 7.2 million Syrians internally, and compelled over four million others to take refuge in neighboring countries, including Jordan and Lebanon.”
