Secret supply roads smuggle hope to Syria

Syrians living in rebel-held areas cut off from main supply routes, making smuggling vital lifeline.

Rebel-controlled areas of Syria are cut off from supply routes and depend instead on secret smuggling routes from Turkey; fighters, aid workers and shopkeepers all depend on this road for supplies.

Many are living without income, electricity and complain of not having had meat on the table in months. For those living in rebel areas, these mountain smuggling lines are crucial – but still not enough.
