Due to heavy fighting and aircraft bombing of Bashar al-Assad and his allies, the civilian population of the eastern part of the Syrian city of Aleppo was completely cut off from food and medicines coming in from outside. It was reported by DW, quoting Jan Egeland, Special Advisor to the UN Special Envoy for Syria.
According to the UN representative, neither the Syrian rebels, nor Russia gave its final consent to humanitarian organizations plan that provides the delivery of assistance in the eastern part of Aleppo, as well as the evacuation of sick and wounded from there.
Egeland also said that UN was planning to deliver humanitarian aid to about a million of Syrian people, who are in besieged or hard-to-reach areas of the war-torn country, but none of the convoys did not reach its destination. On Thursday, soldiers of the Syrian army did not let aid pass into the city of Douma.
