Syria Red Crescent, ICRC deliver rare aid in rebel Aleppo

A Syrian refugee family are attended to by members of a Red Cross centre in Malaga, southern Spain on April 4, 2014The International Committee of the Red Cross and Syria’s Red Crescent have made rare aid deliveries in rebel-held territory in northern Aleppo province with government consent, a spokesman said Monday. “Together with the Syrian Arab Red Crescent (SARC), we were able to deliver food assistance and other essential items such as kitchen sets, hygiene kits, blankets, mattresses to an area called Arum in western Aleppo that is under opposition control,” ICRC spokesman Ralph El Hage told AFP. Although the seven-truck convoy carried enough aid for 30,000 people, El Hage said that “relative to the needs in the area this is little.” He said the delivery came a day after the organisation delivered medical aid to two government hospitals and two others in rebel-held parts of Aleppo city.
