Damascus Suburbs - SMART

On Wednesday, the local council of the town of Nashabiya (18 km east of Damascus), said that the international aid that entered the town is only enough for a few days.

Ahmad Sarhan, a member of the council, told SMART that the convoy includes 1,400 boxes containing foodstuffs and medical supplies. They will be distributed to all the towns of Eastern Ghouta.

The Ministry of Local Administration, Damascus Suburbs, stated that the government chose to allow aid at this time “to deceive the world ahead of the UN Security Council meeting that discusses the deteriorating humanitarian situation in Eastern Ghouta as a result of the unjust siege imposed these past five years."

The Ministry, affiliated to the Syrian Interim Government, confirmed that the ”Assad government chose this time to benefit from the media coverage and deceive the international community in the Security Council that it is not besieging Eastern Ghouta."

The Ministry also confirmed that the aid delivered consists of 100 tons of food, and thus "is not commensurate with the magnitude of the humanitarian disaster caused by the government siege on Eastern Ghouta."

Nine UN aid trucks entered through the refugee camp crossing. Two trucks headed to Douma and the rest were sent to the town of al-Nashabiya.

Around 400 thousand people are currently besieged by loyalist forces in the towns and cities of Eastern Ghouta, preventing entry of aid to them only slightly and sporadically, and amid intense air and artillery shelling. Hundreds of people were killed and died as a result of shelling, malnutrition and lack of treatment.
