Damascus approves UN aid delivery to remote camp on Jordan-Syria border

AMMAN: The Syrian government gave approval for the UN to deliver aid next week to thousands of desperate civilians stranded near a US garrison in southeastern Syria on the Iraqi-Syrian border, aid workers and camp officials said on Wednesday.
A siege earlier this month by the Syrian army and a block on aid by Jordan has depleted food in the camp and led to at least a dozen deaths in the last week among its over 50,000 inhabitants, mainly women and children, residents and UN sources said.
