    People of Syria threatened by hunger

    Several UN-linked humanitarian organizations have released statistical-based warnings about the hunger threatening people inside Syria, especially the internally displaced people. However, no serious practical measures have been taken to mitigate the misery of poor and displaced Syrians.

    According to the Red Crescent Organization, the Syrian regime agreed with the United Nations last March on transferring relief assistance by planes from Erbil airport in Iraqi Kurdistan to Syria's northeastern areas.

    The regime refused a similar agreement of aid delivery through the Turkish land to areas in northern Syria.

    The Red Crescent Organization still works in Syria via agreements signed with the Syrian Government.

    The Organization in Aleppo was used to send regularly humanitarian aid to Kobane.

    This aid, provided by the UN World Food Programme, is the main food source for poor and internally displaced people in these two regions.

    However, due to  the blockage of Kobane-Aleppo road by ISIL, the aid transfer had to stop since July 2013.

    Yaser al-Amir, the head of the Syrian Red Crescent branch in Kobane, said Kobane depends on aid provided by the Red Crescent branch in Aleppo.

    Al-Amir emphasized that more than 2,000 displaced Syrian families have resorted to Kobane city.

    According to the head of the Syrian Red Crescent branch in Kobane, some families in the city still live at schools under difficult situations.

    Kobane is besieged by salaphist Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant group (ISIL), which controlled the outskirts of the city for 100 days now.

    Moreover, the border gate with Turkey is closed except for so-called critical cases.
