UN to send another aid convoy to Syria
The United Nations has planned to send another aid convoy to Syria’s besieged enclave of eastern Ghouta on Thursday.
The spoksmen of U.N. Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs Jens Laerke told a news briefing in Geneva today that yesterday 14 of 46 trucks were unable to fully unload due to shelling on the town of Douma.
He said after nearly nine hours inside, the decision was made to leave for security reasons and to avoid jeopardising the safety of humanitarian teams on the ground. APP/AFP
