Ammon News - Every day since 9 February, an average of 22 trucks carrying aid provided by seven United Nations agencies have crossed from Turkey into north-west Syria, using the three available border crossings, the UN announced late Monday.

In government-controlled areas in Syria, humanitarian partners have provided assistance to 324,000 people in February and 170,000 people so far this month, primarily in the most affected governorates of Aleppo, Hama, and Lattakia, UN Deputy Spokesperson Farhan Haq said.

"Aid partners report that their emergency response stocks have been depleted, putting operations at risk unless urgent funding is made available," he stated.

He added that the Syrian healthcare system, which was already overwhelmed before the earthquake, is also at risk of collapse in some areas, depriving people in need of life-saving medical services.
