  • UN Aids crosses frontline in Syria

    Published on November 23, 2016


    UN: A UN aid convoy carrying food, water and other basic supplies was able to cross frontlines in Syria to reach a rebel-held city, the first
    cross-line delivery this month.

    An UN spokesman said that the food and other supplies will help 107,500 Syrians staying in Rastan and nearby villages in the Homs region of western Syria, which has not had any aid since July.

    UN aid chief Stephen O’Brien said that the supplies require complex negotiations. He said that three aid convoys recently sent to distant areas were turned back at checkpoints manned by Syrian security personnel.
