War-hit Syrians struggle to get earthquake aid

February 13, 2023 - The U.S. has called on all parties in Syria to immediately grant humanitarian access to those in need after the twin earthquakes that have killed thousands of people.

A United Nations spokesperson on Sunday said earthquake aid from government-held parts of Syria into opposition-controlled territory has been held up by “approval issues” with one hardline group. The issue poses an added challenge for aid workers trying to reach the northern regions affected by last Monday’s earthquake, Reuters said.
