UN renews Syria aid via Turkey but one of two access points shut

0 32

“The United Nations Security Council has approved aid deliveries to Syria from Turkey, but only after caving into Russian pressure to close one of the two access points into the war-torn country.”

“Following a week of division and seven ballots, the UNSC on Saturday passed a proposal submitted by Germany and Belgium allowing the use of the Bab al-Hawa crossing point for one year.”

“Western nations say the closure of the second access point will cut a lifeline for 1.3 million Syrians in the country’s northwest.”- Al Jazeera English
