Syrian gov’t allows aid in two rebel areas

A relief official says the Syrian government has allowed food supplies to enter two besieged areas under rebel control near the capital, Damascus.

Khaled Iriqsousi, who heads the Syrian Arab Red Crescent, said that enough supplies to feed 10,000 people for a month entered the Damascus suburbs of al-Ghezlaniya and Jdaidet al-Shibani on Thursday.

On Tuesday, Syria’s government and the main Western-backed opposition group, the Syrian National Coalition, agreed to allow humanitarian aid into some blocked-off areas.
