NEWS CENTER - The Autonomous Administration withdrew the aid convoy that had been waiting for 9 days after Turkey blocked the aid it sent for the earthquake victims.
The Autonomous Administration of Northern and Eastern Syria prepared 30 fuel tankers and 20 humanitarian aid trucks for Turkey and the regions where the groups it supports were settled on February 8. Despite the efforts and attempts of the Autonomous Administration to reach the earthquake victims, Turkey did not allow the aid to pass. The international delegations' mediation for aid proved inconclusive.
After the aid was blocked, the Autonomous Administration withdrew the aid convoy waiting at the Um Cîlud gate after 9 days.
