Food production has dropped to an all-time low in Syria where millions of hungry civilians are struggling through their sixth winter in a war zone.
Many farmers have had to abandon their land and are unable to afford the soaring cost of seeds, fertilisers and tractor fuel.
This latest news comes from the United Nations and the World Food Programme.
Food shortages are particularly worrying in east Aleppo, the rebel-held part of the city is surrounded by government forces where the UN says 250,000-275,000 civilians still live.
More than seven million people in Syria are classified as “food insecure”, meaning they are not always sure where their next meal is coming from, and 80 percent of the households struggle with a lack of food or lack of money to buy food.
