      Ban: 20% of Syrians Need Humanitarian Aid


      20% of Syrians require humanitarian aid as a result of the ongoing civil war in the country, UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon said on Monday.

      Speaking to journalists, Ban said that "Syria is shooting itself in the foot. The war crimes there are accumulating and Syria has been torn apart. The conflict has turned from a political debate into a large-scale humanitarian crisis, in which one of five people are in need of humanitarian assistance.”
