MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Twenty six UN trucks carrying humanitarian aid have proceeded to the Syrian city of Idlib through the Cilvegozu checkpoint in Turkey’s Hatay Province, Turkish press agency Anadolu reported.
On September 13, after the start of the ceasefire, 40 United Nations' trucks carrying humanitarian aid crossed the Cilvegozu checkpoint but were unable to proceed into Syria.
Earlier reports suggested that trucks with humanitarian aid were waiting at the border due to security concerns, with large amounts of food due to expire.
A UN-Syrian Arab Red Crescent convoy carrying humanitarian aid for Syria's Aleppo province was attacked last Monday, according to the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC). As a result, 18 of 31 trucks were destroyed and at least 21 individuals were killed.
