UNITED NATIONS – A new United Nations report says the Islamic State group has more than 225,000 Syrians under siege in a single city.
The latest monthly report by Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon says the last time the U.N. was able to reach the besieged western neighborhoods of Deir ez Zor was in May 2014. The report says the only U.N. aid that made it in last month, via the world body's humanitarian partners, was 140 sheep.
