UN humanitarian assistance has been delivered to the Syrian town Serghaya near Damascus for the first time since February, Deputy Spokesman for the UN Secretary General Farhan Haq said Tuesday.

UNITED NATIONS (Sputnik) — He noted that food and hygiene products, as well as kits for education were delivered to 15,000 people in Serghaya. Last time the humanitarian aid arrived to Sarghaya, the town which the United Nations describe as difficult to access, was in February 2016.
