Intel: US pledges nearly $600M in humanitarian aid to Syria

The Biden administration is also calling on the UN Security Council to allow the free flow of aid to opposition-held parts of Syria.

The United States has announced nearly $600 million to support the humanitarian response in Syria, where a decade of civil war has left an estimated nine in 10 people living in poverty and created what remains the world's largest refugee crisis.

“We offer support to alleviate the suffering of the world’s most vulnerable people because it aligns with our values as a nation and with our national interests,” Secretary of State Antony Blinken said in a statement on Tuesday. “We urge other donors to support the Syrian people by increasing their contributions to these efforts.”
