Thousands of people in Syrians may have died of starvation, the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights, Zeid Ra’ad Al-Hussein, said.

 

“The deliberate starvation of people is unequivocally forbidden as a weapon of warfare, so are sieges,” Interfax cited him as saying.

 

The High Commissioner added that “thousands of people may have starved to death” in besieged Syrian cities.
