Description : As the Syrian conflict approaches its fifth anniversary and the fighting and violence intensifies, the suffering is escalating.
While nearly four million people have fled the country, around 8 million are displaced within the country; many have been forced to move several times.
Beyond the fear of bombs or being caught up in crossfire, families are now having to face dropping temperatures as winter begins.
ICRC’s Head of Operations for the Near and Middle East, Robert Mardini says: The humanitarian situation in Syria is catastrophic and deteriorating day after day. People are suffering. Temperatures are freezing cold. They have very few resources. Their needs are massive. We need better access to be able to help them. The situation is critical. »
