Suspending Aid to Syria

September 20, 2016

(The Atlantic) – The United Nations said Tuesday it’s suspending humanitarian aid to Syria a day after an airstrike—carried out allegedly by Syria or Russia—struck an aid convoy headed to Aleppo. “As an immediate security measure, other convoy movements in Syria have been suspended for the time being, pending further assessment of the security situation,” Jens Laerke, a spokesman for the UNOCHA, the UN humanitarian office, said in Geneva.
