UN set to deliver aid to besieged Homs

4 years ago89 views

The United Nations is set to begin deliveries of aid to rebel-held areas in the Syrian city of Homs, a day after dozens of civilians were evacuated after surviving more than 600 days of an army siege.

The Homs evacuation and delivery of food and medical supplies is part of a deal brokered by the UN between the Syrian government and armed rebels following months of negotiations.

A UN convoy arrived on Friday after an uneasy ceasefire came into effect after the implementation of a truce discussed at peace talks in Switzerland last week.
