As nearly 500,000 children are living under siege amid escalating violence across Syria, the UN Children's Fund (UNICEF) has called for lifting sieges and allowing immediate humanitarian access.

The number of children living under siege has doubled in less than one year, UNICEF says in a press release.

"Nearly 500,000 children now live in 16 besieged areas across the country, almost completely cut off from sustained humanitarian aid and basic services," it added.
