"President Barack Obama [on Tuesday] approved an additional $155 million of humanitarian aid and announced it himself in order to underscore to the Syrian people and the international community the U.S. commitment to assisting Syrians and other refugees in need of immediate, lifesaving assistance as a result of [Syrian President Bashar al-Assad's] brutality," the State Department's "DipNote" blog reports (1/29). "This brings America's contribution to date to $365 million, making the United States the largest single donor of humanitarian assistance to the Syrian people," according to the White House Blog, which provides a video of President Obama's announcement (1/29).
