The UN on Tuesday dispatched 17 trucks with humanitarian aid to northwestern Syria, where millions of people remain in need of assistance due to internal conflict.

THE AID WILL BE DISTRUBED IN RURAL AREAS

The trucks crossed over into Syria’s Idlib province through the Cilvegozu border gate in Turkey’s southern Hatay province.

The aid will be distributed among residents of Idlib and nearby rural areas.

Syria has been ravaged by a civil war since early 2011, when the Assad regime cracked down on pro-democracy protesters.

Hundreds of thousands of people have been killed and more than 10 million displaced, according to UN estimates.
