Description

UN AID ++++++++++ The United Nations has sent its first aid convoy into Syria without the consent of the government in Damascus. It comes a week after the UN adopted a resolution allowing aid deliveries without the Syrian government's approval. Nine trucks carrying food and sanitation supplies entered Syria from Turkey. The UN said more than 10.8 million Syrians are in need of aid after more than three years of brutal civil war. More than 150,000 people have been killed in Syria and over 9 million have been displaced from their homes by the fighting, which began in 2011 as an uprising against President Bashar al-Assad.
