I am crying.
Today, I’m watching the news and saw NBC’s version of this.
People reduced to eating grass and leaves because resources are being blocked. The blockade is being sanctioned by the Bashar al-Assad government in Syria.
How can this be OK?
Videos smuggled out. And now they will let aid in. But nobody knows how much.
This from The Guardian:
It remains unclear how much aid will be allowed into Madaya, situated a few miles from Damascus, where people have been reduced to scouring grass from minefields and eating tree leaves and boiling water flavoured with spices. A kilogram of rice now costs around $250 (£170) there.
Those poor people. Those poor babies.
