The UN has described the Syrian government’s siege of Eastern Ghouta an “outrage” and has asked for an immediate lifting of the siege so that aid can reach the civilians. The isolated population is dying from bombing, hunger and cold weather.

People in a besieged neighbourhood in Homs were hoping that a lasting ceasefire agreement would eventually be negotiated.

Opposition fighters, their families and civilians are experiencing severe food, water and medicine shortages.

Al Jazeera's Hashem Ahelbarra reports from Gazientep, in neighbouring Turkey.
