No Aid to Opposition-Held Syria

I scoured the web in search of photos showing how the 5k tonnes of bilateral earthquake relief aid sent from 25 countries to regime-held Syria is being distributed. I found only two measly photos. Where’s all the aid?

It turns out the two organizations tasked with “storing” that aid are:

- The Syrian Arab Red Crescent, headed by nightclub-owner-turned-humanitarian and regime crony Khaled Hboubabti

- The Syria Trust for Development, founded and headed by Asma al-Assad, the president's wife.
