Syria’s government on Thursday gave permission to the United Nations to deliver humanitarian aid to three besieged towns including Madaya near Damascus, the U.N. said.

“The U.N. welcomes today’s approval from the Government of Syria to access Madaya, Fuaa and Kafraya and is preparing to deliver humanitarian assistance in the coming days,” a U.N. statement said.
