URGENT: UN Says ‘Ready’ to Resume Syria Aid Convoys
Wed Sep 21, 2016 20:45:15

The UN said Wednesday it was ready resume humanitarian convoys in Syria after an attack on aid trucks and a warehouse, which left 20 people dead, triggered a suspension of deliveries.

“The preparation for these convoys has now resumed and we are ready to deliver aid to besieged and hard-to-reach areas as soon as possible,” the UN’s humanitarian office (OCHA) said in a statement, AFP reported.
