DAMASCUS, SYRIA (UN/CNN) – Thousands of people line up for food aid in Damascus amid the ongoing civil war.

As we approach the three-year anniversary of the war in Syria, images have emerged showing the shocking conditions suffered daily by many caught up in the fighting.

Palestinian refugees in the Yarmouk Camp in Damascus are lining up for food parcels.

Around 20,000 people are trapped inside the camp, which has been under blockade since last July.
