    The mandate for the cross-border operation that delivers aid into rebel-held parts of Syria is due to expire in little more than a week.

    Russia has indicated its displeasure with the operation and many expect it to oppose the mandate renewal and any expansions that may be proposed.

    The UN has warned that failure to re-authorize those deliveries would have “devastating consequences” for millions of Syrians.
