UNITED NATIONS (Reuters) - The United Nations said on Thursday the first humanitarian aid convoy had entered Syria from Turkey without Syrian government consent and under the authorization of a new U.N. Security Council resolution.
"A convoy of nine trucks crossed into Syria today from the Turkish crossing at Bab al-Salam, carrying U.N. food, shelter, water purification and sanitation supplies," said Amanda Pitt, spokeswoman for the U.N. Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs.
