Water Being Used as Weapon of War in Syrian Conflict, UN Warns

Lauren McCauley, staff writer

The United Nations on Tuesday said it has reason to believe that groups in the Syrian conflict are using the country's scarce water supply as a weapon of war.

"There is increasing evidence that parties to the conflict are using water to achieve military and political gains," the United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF) declared in a press statement.
