Syria Allows Humanitarian Aid Into Select Areas

The U.N. has announced Syria’s government has entered into a written agreement to allow international aid workers and supplies into four provinces.  According to the U.N. Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs, aid will be limited to Daraa, Deir el-Zour, Homs and Idlib.  International aid agencies will be limited to nine U.N. agencies and seven other NGOs.  The U.N. estimates that there are approximately one million Syrians in "urgent need of some form of humanitarian aid."
