A U.N. Security Council resolution last month called on Syria’s warring sides to facilitate aid deliveries. The U.N. says more than 9 million Syrians are in need of humanitarian assistance.
Many of those most in need live in areas under government-imposed blockades, while others are in territory under the nominal control of rebel groups.
