Ninety-nine trucks carrying UN humanitarian aid proceeded on Tuesday through the Gilwegezu checkpoint on the Turkish-Syrian border into the Idlib de-escalation zone.

According to the Anadolu news agency, trucks with basic necessities arrived in the Reyhanli region of the Turkish province of Hatay, from where they were transported to northwestern Syria.

Humanitarian aid will be distributed among those in need in and around Idlib.
