UN chief calls for access for further aid convoys in Syria
(MENAFN- Jordan News Agency) New York, Mar. 7 (Petra)-- United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres called for aid convoys to have immediate access in Syria a day after air strikes cut short deliveries of food and medicine to Eastern Ghouta.
Guterres urged all warring sides to allow aid trucks to return to the main town of Douma in Eastern Ghouta to complete the delivery of humanitarian supplies "as previously agreed with the Syrian authorities," a UN statement read.
Earlier, as air strikes and artillery fire continued, aid workers decided to pull out of Eastern Ghouta after offloading 32 of the 46 trucks in the convoy.
