First UN aid trucks cross from Turkey to Syria

NUSAYBIN - Several UN aid trucks crossed the Turkish border into Syria for the first time on Thursday, a Reuters witness said, a step which aid officials hope will pave the way for greater humanitarian access to the country's most desperate areas.


The trucks, mostly from the UN World Food Program, crossed at the Nusaybin border post and were destined for the Kurdish city of Qamishli in Syria, officials said. (Reuters)
