The International Committee of the Red Cross says the coronavirus pandemic, coupled with years of war, has aggravated the humanitarian condition in Syria.

The I-C-R-C’s Spokesperson for Near and Middle East made the comments in an exclusive interview with Press TV. Hetherington said millions of people are being pushed into deeper hunger and poverty due to lack of access to food or low purchasing power. She added that money alone could not change the conditions in Syria, as access to war-torn regions such as Idlib is also a crucial factor. Asked about the recent US sanctions on the Arab nation, the I-C-R-C official expressed concern about the possibility that restrictions might hamper humanitarian efforts.
