ARK News… On Thursday, the United Nations entered an aid convoy from Turkish territory through the Bab al-Hawa border gate, north of Idlib Governorate, northwestern Syria.

Mazen Alloush, director of media relations at the Bab al-Hawa crossing, told Zaman al-Wasl that "six aid trucks entered Thursday afternoon from Bab al-Hawa gate belonging to the United Nations," stressing that "the trucks contain cleaning materials and mattresses.", and blankets, and fall within the UN cross-border aid program, and do not fall within the emergency response aid to the earthquake disaster.

In addition, today, Thursday, several civil and revolutionary activists and activists organized protests in front of the earthquake-damaged buildings in the town of "Jenderes" located within the "Olive Branch" area in the northern countryside of Aleppo, and the village of "Basnia" near the city of "Harem" in the northern countryside of Idlib. This is to denounce the failure of the international community for the fourth consecutive day regarding the emergency response to the earthquake victims in the opposition-held areas in northwestern Syria.

The Syrian Civil Defense Organization (the White Helmets) had confirmed, in its latest statistics, that the death toll from the earthquake in northwestern Syria has risen to more than 1,900 deaths, and more than 2,950 injured, indicating that the number is likely to rise significantly due to the presence of hundreds of people. The families are under the rubble of destroyed buildings and homes, explaining that their teams are continuing search and rescue operations amid very difficult conditions, about 75 hours after the violent earthquake that struck the area.
