Rif Dimashq, SMART

On Friday the Local Council of Douma announced that humanitarian aid received was insufficient, with an estimated daily food ration of one to every 40 families.

Muhammad Bakour, Manager at the council’s Relations Office, told SMART that 13 food trucks (which were unloaded on Monday), entered Douma on Friday. Whilst the number of trucks arriving has increased to 46, the quantities are still only for 27,500 civilians, insufficient to provide for the city’s current population of 130,000.

Baker also added that although the UN had distributed aid to 400,000 besieged civilians in Ghouta, it was not sufficient for all civilians living there, as each only received only a few grams of food items.

Bakour added that when asking them about upcoming humanitarian aid, the UN and Red Cross said, “We are preparing a new aid convoy and are waiting for permission from the Syrian government”. Bakour noted that the medical and food items entering Ghouta were “the same always” and that the last time two trucks of medical supplies were forbidden to enter by the Syrian government.

In recent hours most of the aid convoy has entered Ghouta, expect for the two trucks of medical supplies.

Earlier, the Local Council of Douma described the current situation in Eastern Ghouta as a holocaust committed by the Syrian government and its allies. The council further pointe out that there are 500,000 civilians in Ghouta, all of whom are suffering from tragic events and fleeing from cities, towns and agricultural areas towards the city of Douma.
