BEIRUT, LEBANON (1:40 P.M.) – A large convoy of vehicles bearing humanitarian goods has entered rebel-held areas in the Rastan region of northern Homs province to deliver aid.

According to sources, the convoy consists of nineteen trucks from the Red Crescent humanitarian assistance organization.

The convoy is stated to have brought with it some 6,700 food parcels, three thousand items of winter clothing for children, flour bags, hygiene kits, water battles, kitchen kits, basic vaccines and medical supplies.

Arriving sometime on the night of Sunday to Monday, the humanitarian aid was delivered into the rebel-held Rastan region through the Dar al-Kabiraa crossing point.

The development comes as Syrian government and Russian diplomatic mediators are once again in negotiations with local opposition authorities for the reestablishment of a general reconciliation regime for the Rastan region.

I hope that these nineteen trucks have been verified by the SAA before entering the Rastan region.
