Of­fi­cials con­cerned about Aleppo

Marysville Appeal-Democrat - - WORLD / WEATHER -

Syr­ian govern­ment forces con­tin­ued their push into rebel-held districts of Aleppo Thurs­day as in­ter­na­tional of­fi­cials is­sued dire warn­ings of an on­go­ing hu­man­i­tar­ian dis­as­ter in Syria’s largest city.

The U.N.’s hu­man­i­tar­ian chief Stephen O’Brien told the Se­cu­rity Coun­cil that the con­di­tions in east­ern Aleppo, which is be­sieged and as­saulted by all sides by govern­ment forces, had de­scended into the “mer­ci­less abyss of hu­man­i­tar­ian catas­tro­phe.”
