CWN Editor's Note: The executive director of Caritas Syria lamented the effects of sanctions, including the Caesar Syrian Civilian Protection Act of 2019, which President Trump signed into law after it passed the House in a voice vote and the Senate by an 86-6 margin. “These sanctions hit [Syrians] at the core of their daily lives so that some of them could only eat bread and drink water,” said Riad Sargi. “The garbage containers in the streets became a source of food for the poorest.”
