BEIRUT, LEBANON (5:50 A.M.) – For the first time since September 24th, a U.N. humanitarian aid convoy has entered the besieged East Ghouta region of rural Damascus.
According to a UN report, at least 48 humanitarian aid trucks filled with food and medicine entered the East Ghouta, Monday, distributing these supplies to the towns and suburbs of ‘Ayn Tarma, Jisreen, Beit Sawa, Al-Ashari, and Al-Mahamdiyah.
These aforementioned sites in the East Ghouta are mostly controlled by Faylaq Al-Rahman, which is a faction of the Free Syrian Army (FSA) that only operates in this region.
Russia recently renewed their de-escalation agreement with Faylaq Al-Rahman, prompting the former to help get aid trucks to this besieged area.
