Lebanon: Civilians trapped in Ghouta have ‘massive’ needs, say Red Cross

Regional Spokesperson for the International Committee of the Red Crescent (ICRC) Ralph El Hage stressed the continuing ‘massive’ humanitarian needs of civilians trapped in Eastern Ghouta, during an interview from Beirut on Friday. “The need of people remains massive. The needs are two, threefold, etc. You have medical needs, you have need for access to good source of food, you need also access... Еще to clean water,” said El Hage. The Near and Middle East spokesperson confirmed that sporadic fighting had interrupted the delivery of humanitarian aid. El Hage said: “This is unfortunate because this hinders and jeopardises our work and prevents ultimately people inside who are badly in need of humanitarian aid from receiving this humanitarian aid.» On Friday, a convoy of 13 trucks from the United Nations and Syrian Arab Red Crescent managed to deliver food and medical supplies to warehouses in Douma, Eastern Ghouta.
