Reuters: Medical aid unable to enter Syrian rebel-held Aleppo: WHO
“The World Health Organization (WHO) has been unable to get a desperately needed medical aid convoy through to civilians in the rebel-held part of Aleppo despite a government promise last month to give it access. In a statement this week, the WHO said 240,000 medical treatments from it and the Syrian Arab Red Crescent were being held in a warehouse in the government-held part of the city, Syria’s biggest, ‘for further distribution to the targeted areas, which will begin shortly’…” (Holmes, 1/8).
