UN accuses Syria of impeding aid deliveries

Published: 06.26.14, 21:41 / Israel News

UNITED NATIONS - The UN humanitarian chief accused the Syrian government of imposing "arbitrary restrictions and obstructions" on the delivery of aid and banning life-saving medical supplies from shipments to opposition-held areas.


Valerie Amos told the UN Security Council Thursday that "some opposition groups have also attacked, threatened and refused to cooperate with humanitarian workers."


She said the number of Syrians in need of humanitarian assistance has increased from one million in 2011 to 10.8 million - and gone up 1.5 million in just the last six months. That includes 4.7 million in hard-to-reach areas. (AP)
