Sieges, starvation part of Syria military strategy: UN probe

Syrian government forces are waging a campaign of siege warfare and starvation against civilians as part of their military strategy, a UN-mandated probe said Wednesday. Armed opposition groups are also besieging and indiscriminately shelling civilian neighbourhoods, the independent Commission of Inquiry on the human rights situation in Syria said in a report. "The government employs siege warfare, instrumentalising basic human needs for water, food, shelter and medical care as part of its military strategy," the panel said.
