Earthquake-hit Syria to open two more border crossings for aid delivery – UN

Written by on February 14, 2023

Syria’s government has agreed to open two more border crossings to allow aid into the country devastated by last week’s deadly earthquakes, the UN says.

“It’s going to make a big difference. We are now using just one crossing,” a spokesman for UN Secretary General António Guterres told the BBC.

The quakes in neighbouring Turkey are known to have killed almost 40,000 people in the two countries.

Many Syrians have been angry over the lack of aid to their war-torn nation.
