Syria aid deal: UNSC manages to keep only one crossing open

In a setback for millions of displaced Syrians, several attempts to keep a second border crossing open failed to pass at the Security Council.

Millions of displaced Syrians will now have only one Turkish border crossing to receive aid after several attempts to keep a second crossing open failed to pass at the United Nations Security Council.
