Guterres Makes Appeals For Cross-Border Operation Aid To Syrian Refugees

Secretary-General Antonio Guterres told the Security Council that it is a “moral imperative” for the 15 members to renew a cross-border aid operation from Turkey into northwest Syria that assists more than 4 million people.

The council must vote on renewing the mechanism by July 10.

Russia says it prefers all aid to go through Damascus.

U.N. humanitarian officials say that would be inadequate to meet the scale of need, which is the highest it has been since the war started in 2011.
