UNITED NATIONS (AP) — Russia has agreed to continue humanitarian aid deliveries from Turkey to rebel-held northwest Syria for six months — not a year as many U.N. Security Council members, Secretary-General Antonio Guterres and over 30 organizations are seeking. Currently, aid has been delivered through one crossing for a year. That expires Friday. The U.N. Security Council is scheduled to meet Thursday morning to vote on a resolution to continue cross-border deliveries. Former International Criminal Court chief prosecutor Luis Moreno Ocampo warned Wednesday that approving cross-border deliveries to northwest Syria, council members “could find themselves materially supporting a U.N.-designated terrorist organization.”
