A convoy of the Syrian Arab Red Crescent that carried food and aid has reached the Homs, waiting to enter the besieged district of Bab Amr. A total of seven vehicles that left Damascus on Friday morning arrived the hostile city.
According to Carla Haddad, the Geneva-based spokesperson for the International Committee of the Red Cross, the convoy is set to meet with more volunteers and ambulances in Homs before entering Bab Amr.
Recently the government troops have been conducting house-to-house searches looking for rebels. Reports of executions started not long after the government forces took control of Bab Amr.
Activists informed that around 4,000 civilians still remain in Bab Amr, Haddad has not made any estimates of the exact number of civilians remaining in the dangerous neighbourhood. (AV)
