Unabated Syria's war, no respite for civilians: UN

The United Nations says Syria’s war rages unabated despite a fall in the number of besieged civilians.

U.N. humanitarian adviser Jan Egeland while talking to reporters in Geneva, said millions of civilians were still caught up in the seven-year-old conflict and many who escaped battle zones had to seek shelter in overcrowded camps for the displaced in Idlib in the northwest.

He called for negotiations to protect the civilians, and said recent air raids in Idlib were a bad omen. APP/AFP
