Organizations warn of consequences

Imminent border closure in Syria

With a border crossing threatened to close, aid organizations are warning of a worsening of the humanitarian crisis in Syria.

Welthungerhilfe and Malteser warned on Friday that people are particularly dependent on cross-border aid now in winter.

The reason for concern is a UN resolution that expires on January 10th. It ensures that United Nations aid supplies are also brought to Syrian regions that are not controlled by the government via Turkey. On Monday, the Security Council in New York plans to extend cross-border aid for a further six months. The support has been extended several times in the past, but the last time in July there were days of negotiations.
