UN humanitarian chief points finger at Syria

A Syrian woman and youths flee the site of a reported barrel-bomb attack by government forces in the northern city of Aleppo on June 26, 2014Syria is more concerned with obstructing the United Nations than getting urgent aid to millions of its most needy, UN humanitarian chief Valerie Amos told the Security Council on Thursday. Amos was presenting the fourth UN report on humanitarian access in war-torn Syria, and stressed that 10.8 million Syrians were in desperate need of humanitarian aid — but that workers were having trouble reaching about half of them. Amos repeated her demand that Damascus allow aid to pass into Syria from neighboring Turkey, Iraq and Jordan, which she said would help 1.3 million people. Syria opposes the delivery of cross-border aid that would send supplies directly to areas held by the armed opposition in its brutal civil war.
