Vital Syrian humanitarian aid destroyed in airstrikes

Several explosions hit the region of Idlib near the Turkish border on Sunday evening, resulting in a fire breaking out at a CARE-supported warehouse containing humanitarian supplies.

The blaze destroyed relief items for nearly 25,000 people in dire need of humanitarian assistance in northwest Syria.

Guards working for CARE’s partner organisation, Shafak, were able to extinguish the fire after a first explosion hit the warehouse, which contains aid packages for newly displaced families and hygiene items.

But a second explosion in a truck parking area sparked a new, even larger fire which led to thousands of relief supplies being burnt and destroyed.
