Syrian rebel-held suburb appeals for urgent help | NIGERIA ENTERTAINMENT | Top Nigeria Entertainment Site

Aid agencies say Syrians across the country face difficulties getting food, but hunger in the rebel-held suburbs of Damascus, largely surrounded by government territory, is particularly acute.In an open letter circulated by the main Western-backed opposition group, Moadamiyeh residents pleaded with the international community for help.“Save us from death. Save us from the hell of Assad’s killing machine,” the letter said. “For nearly one year, the city of Muadamiyah has been under siege with no access to food, electricity, medicine, communications, and fuel.”The Syrian National Coalition, the main umbrella group for the opposition, called on international organizations to establish a humanitarian corridor to allow food into the area. On Saturday, the United Nation’s humanitarian chief Valerie Amos called for an “immediate pause” in clashes to allow civilians to leave.A spokesman for the Moadamiyeh council, Qusai Zakarya, confirmed that local residents had sent the letter to the Coalition asking for help.“We are heading toward a definite destiny: starvation,” he said via Skype, with the clap of shelling and the thumping of a helicopter audible in the background. “Please, we are begging you international organizations to enter and distribute food. Residents are living on boiled grape leaves and olives,” he said.
