The Islamist rebels of Jaysh Al-Fateh (Army of Conquest) have once again obstructed aid from entering the beleaguered towns of Kafraya and Al-Fou’aa in the Idlib Governorate, according to a government source.

The source added that Syrian Red Crescent transport vehicles were blocked by the Jaysh Al-Fateh militants – the reason given to the aid workers was “the road is unsafe”.

There have been no reported clashes taking place around these besieged towns, so there should be no reason to block humanitarian aid to the civilian population in Kafraya and Al-Fou’aa, unless there was a violation to the ceasefire agreement.

Similar to the humanitarian crisis to Madaya, the towns of Al-Fou’aa and Kafraya are in dire need of supplies to survive these harsh winter months in northern Syria.

Since the capture of Idlib City in April 2015, the Islamist rebels of Jaysh Al-Fateh have laid siege to these predominately Shi’ite towns, targeting them with indiscriminate rockets and mortar shells on a daily basis, until the implementation of a 6 month long ceasefire in

Recently, several trucks filled with humanitarian aid arrived to the town of Madaya in western Damascus; this was reportedly the first time since October that aid arrived to the starving civilian population
