UN Still Struggling to Move Aid into Syria

Saturday, 13 December 2014 07:23 AM

The U.N.'s decision in July to move aid into war-torn Syria without the consent of President Bashar Assad marked the first time humanitarian need trumped a nation's sovereignty.

Five months later, aid workers are dismayed that more U.N. aid hasn't moved into Syria, where 200,000 people have died in the 3-year-old civil war. But the workers still want the U.N. Security Council next week to renew the resolution.

The U.N. humanitarian office has said that if security allowed, the aid trucked through four border crossings could reach 2.9 million people and complement higher levels of aid that non-governmental organizations have moved into the country for years. So far, hundreds of thousands — not millions — of people have benefited from aid delivered under terms of the resolution.
