Humanosphere Discusses Aid Air Drops In Syria

Humanosphere: Russia stands in the way of humanitarian air drops in Syria
Humanosphere reporter Tom Murphy writes, “With roughly 20 towns and cities under siege in Syria, the best possible way to provide assistance to people cut off from food and other supplies is through air drops. The U.N. wants to begin dropping in supplies, but it will not go ahead without support from Russia. So, for the time being, tens of thousands of people are still at risk of starvation and health problems because of the siege tactics employed by Syrian forces…” (6/3).
