The “lifeline” for millions of needy Syrians threatened to dry up, but the UN Security Council reached a last-minute compromise. 

A new dynamic between Russia and the USA could also have played a role in this.

The UN Security Council has agreed to continue providing humanitarian aid to millions of Syrians in need. At a meeting in New York, the most powerful body in the United Nations unanimously decided to extend the important aid mechanism. 

It initially remained unclear on what terms the Council had previously agreed on a compromise. According to the US ambassador to the UN, Linda Thomas-Greenfield, the Bab al-Hawa border crossing would remain open for another twelve months.

The background to this is a UN resolution that has existed since 2014 and that expires on Saturday as planned. 

The regulation allows the United Nations to bring important relief supplies via border crossings to parts of the civil war country that are not controlled by the government. 

Russia, which supports the Syrian leadership of the head of state Bashar al-Assad, had signalled in recent months that it also wanted to close the last of what were once four border crossings – Bab al-Hawa in the northwest.
