BEIRUT, February 09. /ITAR-TASS/. A humanitarian convoy has been delivered to Syria’s Homs old town quarters controlled by the armed opposition. The humanitarian aid was delivered on Sunday by trucks under United Nations flags.
Despite UN flags, militants opened fire at the convoy that was taking civilians out of the dangerous areas, the Al-Mayadeen television channel reported. No information was given about casualties.
On Saturday, four employees of the Syrian Red Crescent Society were wounded as the humanitarian convoy was trying to reach opposition-controlled quarters in Homs. Several mines and shells went off near the Al-Saa square damaging two trucks and an ambulance car. Several trucks ultimately got to the old town but managed to leave it only by night, when the sehlling was over.
Homs Governor Talal al-Barrazi placed responsibility for the attack on militants from the al Kusur quarters, who were not subordinate to commanders with whom a ceasefire agreement had been reached.
