UN aid trucks enter Syria from Turkey
The UN has sent 20 humanitarian aid trucks to Syria from Turkey after the U.S.-Russia-brokered ceasefire came into effect across the country, Anadolu Ageny (AA) cited security sources as saying.

Twenty aid trucks belonging to the UN, crossed into the embattled Syrian city of Aleppo from the Turkish Cilvegozu border town in the southern province of Hatay, according to security sources that preferred to stay anonymous.

The trucks left around noon on Tuesday from the Cilvegozu border gate, the sources added. Forty trucks at least are expected to cross the border by the end of the day.

"If it works out, the truce will be extended one more week and then will be continuous," Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan commented Monday on the Syria ceasefire deal, according to AA.

Erdogan added that food, clothes and toys provided by both the UN and the Turkish Red Crescent would be delivered to Aleppo citizens on Monday evening.

U.S. and Russia agreed to act in order to reduce violence in war-torn Syria, US Secretary of State John Kerry announced on early Saturday. The ceasefire deal reached aims to introduce humanitarian aid to besieged areas.
