Aid Begins To Reach Besieged Syrian Region, But Many Medical Supplies Blocked

A convoy of Syrian Red Crescent trucks arrives in Douma, in the Syrian rebel-held enclave of Eastern Ghouta, on Monday. This aid convoy is the first to reach the besieged area in weeks.

Trucks carrying food for 27,500 people have entered Eastern Ghouta, which has suffered weeks of brutal attacks. The Assad regime prohibited most of the convoy’s medical supplies from being sent in.
