Aid pours into southern Damascus pocket after terrorists’ commanders agree to evacuate

9 July 2017 23:13


On Sunday afternoon, a convoy of 27 Red Crescent lorries carrying aid, medicine and food entered rebel-held neighborhoods in southern Damascus after being given the green light to bypass Syrian Arab Army (SAA) checkpoints in the capital.

The humanitarian aid poured into the rebel-held Babila, Yalda and Beit Saham suburbs while goods were dispersed equally among the needy and poor families living under opposition rule.

After being withheld for several weeks, the aid convoy finally entered after a SAA delegation reached a verbal agreement with local rebel commanders to have insurgents evacuated to Idlib and the urban area restored under government control for the first time since the late 2012.
