Sanctions are Suffocating Syria

After a 12-day visit, UN expert Alena Douhan calls for the lifting of US-led sanctions on Syria, where 90% of the population lives below the poverty line, 12 million grapple with food insecurity, millions are internally displaced, and electricity is scarce. The impact of the sanctions are compounded by a US military occupation of areas containing Syria’s oil and wheat.

Guest: Alena Douhan. UN Special Rapporteur on unilateral coercive measures and human rights.
