Food access in Syria's battle-torn Raqqa is now at "a critical turning point," aid organisations said Monday, with markets shuttered and residents depending fully on their dwindling stockpiles.Raqqa has been gripped by fierce fighting for nearly two months and the U.S.-backed Syrian Democratic Forces have ousted Daesh (ISIS) from half of the northern city. Bread was consistently found in 15 of Raqqa's 24 neighbourhoods several weeks ago.Raqqa is Being Slaughtered Silently (RBSS), an activist collective publishing news from inside the city, has also warned of food problems.The United Nations estimates that between 20,000 and 50,000 people are still in Raqqa, but REACH said the number could be as low as 10,000 .
