WEB Notes: The level of destruction be waged in Syria is astounding. More and more we see Damascus taking damage. Day by day Isaiah 17:1 is coming to pass.

The United Nations expressed concern today about fighting in the Wadi Barada area of west Damascus, which in addition to displacing thousands of people, has also restricted water supplies to some 5.5 million people in and around the Syrian capital.

Addressing reporters in New York, UN Spokesperson Stéphane Dujarric said the Organization and its partners are working with water authorities “to implement an emergency plan to meet around 30 per cent of the daily needs of people.”
