On Thursday, the United Nations (UN) suspended humanitarian aid provided through Jordan to the Daraa governorate, Southern Syria due to the Syrian government forces’ military campaign in the area.

Yan Igland, the UN humanitarian affairs consultant stated in a press conference in the Swiss city of Geneva that the UN isn't able to send the aid convoys to Daraa since June 26, 2018, due to the battles that blocked the safe routes, according to French news agency AFP.  

Igland added that the military campaign of the Syrian government forces displaced 50,000 civilians. Igland called upon Jordan to open borders for refugees.

Earlier on Thursday, the Opposition High Negotiation Committee of the Riyadh Conference 2 considered that there is world willing to hand over the Daraa governorate, Southern Syria for the Syrian government forces and the supporting militias.
