UNITED STATES (OBSERVATORY NEWS) — The United Nations sent a convoy of 46 humanitarian aid trucks to Idlib Governorate, northwestern Syria.
On Thursday, the convoy reached Reyhanli district, Hatay state, in southern Turkey, before passing through the Gilo Gozo border gate towards Syrian territory.
Anatolia learned that aid will be distributed to the needy in Idlib and its countryside.
In May 2017, Turkey, Russia and Iran announced that they had reached an agreement to “escalate the de-escalation zone” in Idlib, as part of the Astana meetings on Syrian affairs.
Despite subsequent understandings made to install the cease-fire in Idlib, the last of which was last January, regime forces and supporters continue to launch attacks in the area, killing more than 1,800 civilians, since September 17, 2018.
Violations of the regime and its allies have also caused a displacement of 1 million 677 thousand people since the beginning of 2019.
