Turkey says ex­pects hu­man­i­tar­ian aid can be de­liv­ered in Syria's Idlib

Daily Messenger - - International -

ANKARA: Turkey said on Thurs­day it ex­pected hu­man­i­tar­ian aid could be de­liv­ered to Syria’s north­ern prov­ince of Idlib, which is un­der the con­trol of a rebel al­liance spear­headed by the for­mer al Qaeda off- shoot Nusra Front.

“Our ex­pec­ta­tion is that Idlib, just like other deesca­la­tion zones, be­comes a re­gion where hu­man­i­tar­ian aid can eas­ily be de­liv­ered,” pres­i­den­tial spokesman Ibrahim Kalin told a news con­fer­ence in Ankara. “Turkey will do what­ever falls upon it on this mat­ter.”

Turkey said last month it was lim­it­ing the move­ment of non-hu­man­i­tar­ian aid into Idlib be­cause the area is con­trolled by a “ter­ror­ist or­ga­ni­za­tion”.
