Onslaught in Syria may spark humanitarian disaster: UN

@UNReliefChief
The U.N. humanitarian chief Mark Lowcock urged the Security Council yesterday to take action to end the "bloody onslaught" in Syria's last opposition-held stronghold, warning that continued violence could create the worst humanitarian disaster of the 21st century.

Mr Lowcock told council members they have ignored previous pleas to stop the bombing and shelling in Idlib province by Syrian and Russian warplanes.

The Security Council has been deeply divided over the Syrian conflict since it began in 2011, with Russia backing the government and Western nations supporting the opposition.

Due to this, U.N.'s most powerful body could not take any significant action.
