United Nations resident coordinator in Syria says shelling puts Ghouta convoy at risk

ICRC, SARC and United Nations teams in Eastern Ghouta delivered 2,400 food parcels that can sustain 12,000 people for one month, as well as 3,248 bags of flour, the ICRC said in a statement.

Once the relief workers arrived, Syrian government forces shelled the outskirts of the town, he said.

A convoy entered the town of Douma in Syria's besieged rebel-held enclave of Eastern Ghouta enclave near Damascus on Friday and delivered the remaining aid that could not be offloaded earlier this week due to insecurity and fighting there, the Red Cross said. Alloush's group is the largest in eastern Ghouta and controls Douma.

The district near the capital Damascus has been besieged for 5 years.

The onslaught has killed more than 1,000 people, the medical charity Medecins Sans Frontieres (MSF) said on Thursday.

Mrs Illman said she picked it up thinking it " might look nice on display " in her home before realising what she had come across. That would make this the oldest message in a bottle at 132 years old; the previous oldest one, per Guinness , was 108 years old .


Doctors Without Borders said Friday that between February 18 and March 3 at least 1,005 people were killed and 4,829 wounded - or 71 killed and 344 wounded on average per day.

The government forces advanced from the east and were only about a mile away from forces on the western side of eastern Ghouta. "Burnt", he said.Defeat in eastern Ghouta would mark the worst setback for rebels since the opposition was driven from eastern Aleppo in late 2016 after a similar campaign of siege, bombing and ground assaults.

The Observatory reported heavy fighting on several fronts. The correspondent said the men were fighters who had come out of eastern Ghouta through the al-Wafideen crossing into government-held Syria.

The Syrian army has captured 52 percent of Eastern Ghouta in recent days, as part of an ongoing wide-scale offensive to dislodge the rebels from that key area on the eastern rim of Damascus.

But Wael Alwan, the Istanbul-based spokesman for Failaq al-Rahman, one of the main rebel groups in eastern Ghouta, denied that the territory had been cut in half.
