Cairo/UNI: Director-General of the World Health Organization (WHO) Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus arrived in Syria, five days after the country was rocked by powerful earthquakes, Syrian state news agency SANA reported.

Ghebreyesus arrived at Aleppo International Airport to tour some hospitals of the city with the Syrian health minister and Aleppo governor, the report said.

"We have brought with us 35 tonnes of the most needed medicines for the victims of the earthquake," the WHO chief was quoted by SANA as saying.
