United Nations Security Council Resolution 2139 was passed by a unanimous vote of the Council on February 22, 2014, and calls on all parties in the Syrian Civil War to permit free access to humanitarian aid.[1][2]

On July 14, 2014, it was supplemented by United Nations Security Council Resolution 2165, allowing direct humanitarian access across four border crossings not controlled by the Syrian government.[3][4]
