No aid into besieged Syria towns before Sunday: Red Cross

Activists hold a sit-in in solidarity with the Syrian besieged town of Madaya on January 8, 2016, outside the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) headquarters in the Lebanese capital BeirutAid deliveries into three besieged towns in Syria will constitute “a huge and complicated operation” that is unlikely to begin before Sunday, a Red Cross spokesman said. Pawel Krzysiek, spokesman for the International Committee of the Red Cross, told AFP Friday that food and medical assistance would be provided to Madaya, near Damascus, and Fuaa and Kafraya, in the northwest. Madaya is home to 42,000 people and has become notorious in recent days because of the cases of starvation recorded there, is surrounded by pro-government forces.
