As little as three besieged areas of Syria out of 18 have been reached by the United Nations’ humanitarian aid in August, Senior Adviser to UN Special Envoy for Syria Jan Egeland said Thursday.

 

“Today is the first of September and this was a stocktaking meeting in many ways on what we have achieved in August and we were only able to reach three of the 18 besieged areas [in Syria],” Egeland told reporters.
