Storm delays UN aid airlift from Iraq to Syria

Published: 12.12.13, 12:51 / Israel News

Severe winter weather delayed the start of the first United Nations airlift of aid items from Iraq's autonomous Kurdistan region to neighboring Syria, a spokesperson said on Thursday.

 

"It appears... the weather in Qamishli has delayed the start of the airlift, as well as prevailing conditions across the region," UN refugee agency (UNHCR) regional spokesperson Peter Kessler told AFP, referring to the city in northeast Syria to which aid supplies are to be flown. (AFP)
