Thousands protest Aleppo siege near Turkish border

Cilvegözü (Turkey) (AFP) – Several thousand people protested Saturday on the Turkish border against the siege of Syria’s second city of Aleppo that has prevented deliveries of much-needed aid. The crowds arrived in bus and car convoys from across the country under the slogan “Open the Way for Aleppo” close to Turkey’s Cilvegozu border gate which has become a key hub for transporting the wounded from Aleppo. The action was organised by the Humanitarian Relief Foundation (IHH) Turkish Muslim charity, which is playing a large role in the transport of aid for Aleppo and pressing for greater access.
