Syria aid deliveries postponed over violence: Red Cross

The UN says humanitarian aid has reached some 240,000 people in recent weeks, such as this convoy arriving in Kafr Batna -- a rebel-held district on the outskirts of DamascusAid groups were unable to deliver much-needed food packages to four besieged towns in war-torn Syria on Monday, the International Committee of the Red Cross said, citing security problems. Under an agreement negotiated with the two warring sides in the five-year war, aid groups were set to deliver aid to Madaya and Zabadani, two towns near Damascus blockaded by the regime, and Fuaa and Kafraya, which are besieged by rebels in Syria’s northwest. Distribution to those areas has always been “synchronised,” ICRC spokesman Pawel Krzysiek told AFP by phone from Damascus, meaning that aid could only be delivered to all four towns at once.
