Over a Million Civilians Trapped
Reports have surfaced that shows the Assad backed Military have used blockades to prevent food and medicines to the rebel forces. It is said that up to a million civilians who are still living in the rebel zones are left with little to nothing. Not only has it led to sickness and starvation but also has led to much unrest with those living in the rebel zone.

This outbreak now has caused many to die and thousands more seeking to flee to neighboring countries that already house millions of refugees. A polio outbreak in Syria has also been confirmed, the first in over 14 years. With the lack of food and water, the polio outbreak may have severe implications for the people living there.
