On Tuesday, the UN sent 36 truckloads of humanitarian assistance to Syria’s northwestern Idlib province. The trucks thwarted into Idlib through the Cilvegozu border gate in Turkey’s southern Hatay province.

The assistance will be distributed between the needy people in Idlib and its adjacent areas.

Syria has been destroyed by a civil war since early 2011, when the Assad regime cracked down on pro-democracy protesters.

Hundreds of thousands of people have been killed and more than 10 million people were displaced, according to UN estimates.

Idlib falls within a de-escalation region counterfeit under an arrangement between Turkey and Russia. The zone has been the subject of several ceasefire agreements, which have regularly been violated by the Assad regime and its allies.
