A third batch of humanitarian supplies entered the al’Wa’ar district of Homs city today, as part of the truce which was reached last week.
The convoy consisted of 18 International Red Crescent lorries carrying 12,000 medical baskets and 8000 food baskets containing tinned food, which entered the district at the same time as a team from the Red Cross.
The team visited the relief and medical officers in the district, as well as the Al-Waleed Hospital, where they held a meeting with the heads of each department in order to determine what supplies were required.
The team will also meet with the Civil Assembly of the district in order to discuss the file of those detained by the regime- one of the terms of the truce.
Syrian army and security forces undertook a detailed search of the relief vehicles before they entered the district. Sources from al-Wa’ar reported that the regime prevented surgical drugs from entering the district, whilst allowing drugs for kidney patients to be brought in.
