The United Nations said on Thursday the first humanitarian aid convoy had entered Syria from Turkey without Syrian government consent and under the authorization of a new UN Security Council resolution.

"A convoy of nine trucks crossed into Syria today from the Turkish crossing at Bab al-Salam, carrying UN food, shelter, water purification and sanitation supplies," said Amanda Pitt, spokeswoman for the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs.
