United Nations relief agencies and their partners are making preparations for humanitarian operations in Syria.

The Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) says that one million Syrians are in need of urgent assistance inside the country.

At the same time the UN refugee agency (UNHCR), is helping Syrian refugees who fled to neighbouring countries.

Relief agencies gathered in Geneva on Friday for a humanitarian forum on Syria.
