U.N. Will Resume Aid To Aleppo Only When Ceasefire Plans Ensure Safety For Aid Workers

Reuters: No U.N. aid for Aleppo until Russia’s ceasefire plan guarantees safety also
“The United Nations said on Tuesday that Russia’s plan for a ceasefire will not mean any supplies get into besieged eastern Aleppo because Russia, Syria, and other groups fighting in the city have not yet given guarantees of safety for aid workers. Syria’s government would also need to overturn its decision last week to refuse to allow aid into the eastern part of the city, where the U.N. estimates 275,000 civilians and 8,000 rebel fighters are trapped…” (Miles/Nebehay, 10/18).
