Fleeting Moment Of Peace Allowed Darayya To Finally Get Aid
Thanks to a 48-hour ceasefire – and we mean a real ceasefire where combatants actually cease firing – the besieged Damascus suburb of Darayya received its first aid convoy since 2012. Darayya has had a tough time. Not only have they struggled with limited supplies and a blocked aid convey, but also their electricity supply was cut off more than three years ago. Since the temporary ceasefire began Wednesday morning, the UN has been able to deliver vaccines, baby milk, medicine and nutritional goods. Though it is a temporary calm, it provides some hope for the 4,000 people besieged in Darayya by Syrian government forces.
