GAZIANTEP, Turkiye (AA) - A new batch of humanitarian aid financed by Turkish donors arrived in northern Syria on Tuesday.
Supplies were sent to Jarablus city in Syria from Turkiye's southeastern province of Gaziantep, according to a statement by the office of Gaziantep's mufti, a local Muslim religious official.
The aid included 1,200 stoves, 200 tons of coal, and 1,200 boxes of food.
Huseyin Hizirlar, the mufti of Gaziantep, thanked donors for their support and vowed that the people of the Turkish province will continue helping Syrians in need.
Syria has been ravaged by a civil war since early 2011 when the Bashar al-Assad regime cracked down on pro-democracy protesters.
Hundreds of thousands of people have been killed and more than 10 million displaced, according to UN estimates.
