United Nations Secretary General Antonio Guterres has confirmed that the first UN relief convoy has arrived in north-western Syria, but added that much more aid to the rebel-controlled area is needed, APA reports citing BBC.

In a statement, Mr Guterres said the convoy was made up of six trucks carrying shelter and other "desperately needed relief supplies".

"More help is on the way but much more, much more is needed," he said.

"We must put people first."

His words come after local Syrian volunteer organisation, the White Helmets, tweeted their disappointment that equipment needed for air rescue efforts had not been sent with the convoy.
