According to him, only two trucks out of the humanitarian convoy had reached the final destination because the militants had opened fire and did not let part of the column pass. Several trucks and were damaged and four hospital attendants were wounded. The United Nations workers and employees of the Syrian Red Crescent Society took part in the humanitarian operation.
Only half of dispatched relief aid reached the besieged city of Homs on Saturday because of provocations by militants.
