Syria says approves U.N. $2.9 billion humanitarian aid plan for 2015

UNITED NATIONS (Reuters) – Syria said on Wednesday it has approved a United Nations plan to deliver humanitarian aid to millions of people in the war-torn country this year, but warned the only way to the end the crisis was to help Damascus fight terrorism.

The strategic response plan appeals for some $2.9 billion in a bid to help 12.2 million Syrians, more than half the population, who are in need as the country’s civil war approaches its fifth year.
