A large truck convoy has delivered humanitarian aid supplies to the Syrian opposition-held town of Rastan under siege in central Homs Province. The 65 truck convoy is sponsored by the UN, The International Committee of the Red Cross and and the Syrian Arab Red Crescent.
The ICRC says the convoy is the first to reach Rastan in over a year.
The supplies include food, medicine and medical equipment, electricity generators and water treatment materials.
Opposition officials say Syrian regime forces did not allow a large portion of the medical supplies including medications and vaccines mainly for children.
The town, which has been under siege for three years, has seen its population double to 120-thousand because of people fleeing fighting in the region.
