BEIRUT, February 09, 3:22 /ITAR-TASS/. Only half of dispatched relief aid reached the besieged city of Homs on Saturday because of provocations by militants.

The Al-Mayadeen TV channel reports that 250 instead of 500 tons of food were delivered to the AL Hamidiyah area because of fighting among militant armed groups that are ruling the roost in Homs. As a result, four Syrian Red Crescent employees were wounded.

Talyal al-Barazi, the governor of the city of Homs, explained that the truce had been violated by militants who were not subordinate to commanders with whom a ceasefire agreement had been reached. Reports that some relief workers were allegedly taken hostage have not been confirmed.

According to Al-Mayadeen, the fighting in Old Homs intensified as night set in.

The government troops are observing the ceasefire agreement.
