Nearly three months after Russia, Iran and Turkey reached a deal on de-escalating the war in Syria, hundreds of thousands of civilians have yet to receive desperately needed aid, a senior U.N. official said Thursday.Mueller accused the Syrian government of blocking aid convoys but said armed groups were also obstructing access, especially in Idlib and the eastern governorates of Syria.Over the past two months, just over a third of the one million Syrians living in besieged and hard-to-reach areas received aid, Mueller said.British Ambassador Matthew Rycroft said that in the last three months only two areas besieged by Syrian forces have received aid.Over 200,000 Syrians have fled fighting in Raqqa since April 1, according to U.N. figures.
