On Wednesday, a UN humanitarian aid convoy, including nine trucks entered Eastern Ghouta. The last humanitarian time assistance convoys came was in late November 2017.

United Nations said on its account on Twitter that a nine-trucks aid convoy of food and medical stuff that is enough for 72,000 civilians, entered Eastern Ghouta, which is outside of loyalist forces’ control.

The convoy entered through the al-Wafideen Camp checkpoint and consisted of 1,440 food rations as well as medical stuff. Two trucks headed to Duma while the rest of the town of al-Nashabia.

Children in al-Nashabia organized a protest against the little amount of aid which entered. Activists say that the assistance is only enough for one day.

Loyalist forces have been besieging 400,000 civilians in the cities and town of Eastern Ghouta. Loyalist forces prevent humanitarian aid from entering the area, allowing only a few amounts aid amidst intensified bombings with different kinds of weapons. Bombings, malnutrition, and the lack of necessary treatment has claimed the lives of hundreds of civilians in Eastern Ghouta.

Earlier, Britain and Germany called for sending humanitarian aid to Eastern Ghouta immediately and without obstacles. The International Committee of Red Cross said that the humanitarian situation in Ghouta had reached a critical level due to the siege as well as running out of medical and foodstuff. Canada held the Syrian government responsible for the death of several patients in Ghouta.
