Trucks carrying humanitarian aid arrive at the Waer neighbourhood of Homs, on June 28, 2014UN aid has reached the last rebel holdout in the central Syrian city of Homs for the first time in six months, activists and a monitoring group said Thursday. “On Tuesday and Wednesday, 30 trucks of aid arrived in Waer for the first time in six months,” Rami Abdel Rahman of the Syrian Observatory of Human Rights told AFP. Another activist said in a video message that the vehicles arrived at night and also delivered “detergents, school supplies and gifts from the United Nations”. In May, forces loyal to President Bashar al-Assad recaptured the historic Old City of Homs from rebel fighters, ending a devastating two-year siege of their stronghold.
