Lamentations In Syria

Starvation tactics against civilians are being used as a weapon of war by the Syrian government, the human rights group Amnesty International says.

 

A new report says at least 128 refugees have died at the besieged Yarmouk camp in Damascus as a result.

 

It says thousands of people still trapped there face a "catastrophic humanitarian crisis".

 

Amnesty says families have been forced to forage for food in the streets - risking being killed by snipers.

There were reports of fresh fighting on the edge of the camp last week.

Lamentations 5:9 RSV

"We get our bread at the peril of our lives, because of the sword in the wilderness."
