UN dispatches 25 truckloads of aid to Syria’s Idlib

Humanitarian aid crosses into Idlib through Turkey’s southern Cilvegozu border gate

News Service AA

The UN on Tuesday sent 25 truckloads of humanitarian aid through Turkey to Idlib, northwestern Syria.

The trucks crossed into the Syrian territory through the Cilvegozu border gate in Turkey’s southern Hatay province.

People in need in Idlib and its surrounding areas will receive the aid.

Syria has been ravaged by a civil war since early 2011 when the Assad regime cracked down on pro-democracy protesters.

Hundreds of thousands of people have been killed and more than 10 million displaced, according to UN estimates.

Idlib falls within a de-escalation zone forged under an agreement between Turkey and Russia. The area has been the subject of multiple cease-fire understandings, which have frequently been violated by the Syrian regime and its allies.
