"150 suspected members. Hundreds more are still at large. Yes, once commanded cities and armies. Group is diminished, but it is again re emerging from the shadows it's reached to the West is curtailed. But in Syria and in Iraq, it is re establishing its hold. With the world distracted. The Islamic state group has not arrested Huntin Somerville. Let's stay with Syria now because not only is the regrouping regrouping of ice a serious problem, but the punishing civil war that is far from over threatens a food crisis. Head of the UN's World Food program is warning that the country faces the risk of mass starvation. The BBC's chief international correspondent Lease do set has been speaking to David Beasley. These joins us now live. Yes. Raja Thie very stark warning from David Beasley of the World Food Program, not just the risk of master starvation but off a mass exodus. In other words, Syria after nearly a decade of war, a devastating war I's a country where millions don't know where their next meal is coming from. And if they don't get that meal if you don't get enough, eh, they'll have no choice but to do what they did in 2000 and 15 which is to head towards the borders head toward Europe. What a fall from grace for Syria, where nearly a decade ago when the uprising first started, Syria was regarded as a middle income. Arab country, So I asked David Beasley and what turn which terms would he described this humanitarian crisis is unprecedented is the worst of all storms coming together? I mean, here's the population of 20 million people that have been exploited. Disturbed extremes by war. Now, almost 10 years. Just five years ago, you had millions of people migrating now 5.5 1,000,000 people have left Syria. We now have 6.5 1,000,000 people internally displaced. And just when you think it could not get any worse, it'll, it's gotten worse. Because you've had economic collapse. Lebanese economy is a collapse. The value of the currency is absolutely just collapsed completely. In fact, Ah food basket is now 20 times the culture that was Just 10 years ago. The simple financial figure to feed a family of five for a month is now more than the average income of the average Syrian in Syria. And so now compound that would Cove. It. And I say covert, because $900 million is now lost inside the Syrian economy from Remittances alone. Lisa this is about a band of situation is you can get and it is getting worse. Body day. Because the inflation rate is going up in extraordinary numbers per day. The food causes going up per day if you can get food at all. And so there are a lot of issues. That need to be resolved quickly. What is the first issue which has to be resolved quickly? The first thing we've got to resolve is the border crossing issue when we move about enough food to feed 1.3 million people. Inside the liver area that has got to be resolved over the next couple of weeks. If that doesn't happen, I cannot imagine the contention that will be facing the border Crossing issue is the issue in itself. But then we need we need financial support to bring some type of relief. To the innocent victims of this conflict. We can feed the people we can get to the people, but we have to have the money. If we don't have the money, Here's the bottom line. You're going to either have mass my mass migration, starvation and exportation by extremist groups. And quite frankly, I don't think you'll have mass starvation. I think the people will leave just like they did five or six years ago. That's why you have 5.5 1,000,000 people now outside Syria. So that's just first address the issue of the border crossing between Turkey and northern Syria in the province. It'd live, which is still controlled by opposition groups. Who is your message directed to visit to Russia, which is a principal ally. President Assad's government, or is it to the government of Damascus, which has always not light? The cross border distribution of food to this is not complicated, and that border crossing is shut down from the from Turkey. Then there is no alternative other than cross line operations inside Syria, and so this days, that's a that's a political mess. And so we want to make sure we get the food in there, no matter what the case is, and we'll do everything we can, but it's a political quagmire. But we're just giving the facts to everyone to understand if we don't have, actually, yes. You're gonna have mass starvation or mass migration. Political quagmire.
