Syria: Red Cross convoy enters Afrin after Turkish bombardment

Humanitarian aid convoys from the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) entered the Syrian city of Afrin on Thursday, for the first time since the Turkish military launched military operations in the Kurdish-held region. In total a 29-strong convoy of Red Cross trucks with medical and food supplies entered the area, 20 of them destined for Afrin with the remainder going to Tel Refa'at...

But according to Reber Wahid, Ambassador of Special Needs in the World Peace Organisation, the allocation is 'very small' compared to Afrin's needs. On Saturday, the UN approved a 30-day ceasefire resolution in order to allow aid to reach the most stricken areas of Syria, following intense bombing that has cost the lives of hundreds during the past weeks.
