The United Nations Security Council has decided to maintain the `` aid route '' that brings humanitarian aid supplies by land to Syria, where the civil war continues, until July this year, and support activities on the ground will continue. .

In the northwestern part of Syria, people who escaped from the attacks of the Assad regime live in refugee camps, etc., and the United Nations Security Council has established a ``support route'' to bring food and medicine by land from neighboring Turkey.

At the Security Council on the 9th, with Japan serving as the chair country, a resolution to extend the deadline for establishing support routes by six months was put to a vote and adopted unanimously.

As a result, humanitarian assistance activities for displaced persons by NGOs through the aid route will be continued until July for the time being.

While Western countries have expressed their intention to welcome this, they have also insisted that the deadline for the route should be extended by one year so that local NGOs can systematically carry out support activities. said, "At the moment, assistance through this route is the most effective option. We welcome the extension of six months, but we should extend it for at least one year to provide the necessary assistance."

In response, Russia's ambassador to the United Nations, Nebenzya, who backs the Assad regime, agreed with the resolution, but reiterated that humanitarian aid should be provided through the Assad regime, not through this route. The bargaining of the countries concerned is expected to continue.

Internally displaced family in Syria reveals mixed feelings

Families of internally displaced persons in Syria, who depend on UN relief supplies for their livelihoods, expressed relief at the decision to extend the deadline for setting up the "support route," but it is unclear whether continued support will be provided. I revealed the inside of a complicated chest as.

Mustafa Shaaban (50), who lives with eight sons and grandchildren in Idlib in the northwestern part of Syria, received an airstrike eight years ago from the Russian military that supports the Assad regime in the north, and his eldest son, who was 17 years old at the time, died. My second son also lost his right leg.

Mr. Shaaban himself was also seriously injured, breaking his skull.

Mr. Shaaban sells firewood for heating with his family, but his daily income is just over 100 yen, and he cannot afford to use the heater at home. In Idlib, I shared a blanket with my children to keep warm.

Shaaban cannot afford to pay for his family's food and treatment for his chronic illness, so he depends on food and medicine assistance from the United Nations.

Shaaban said, "I was a little relieved that I could see my life for the next six months. I was talking.
