UN resumes Syria aid delivery with convoy to besieged area
A United Nations aid convoy was due to deliver aid on Thursday to besieged areas near the Syrian capital after a 48-hour suspension to review security guarantees in the wake of a deadly attack on relief trucks near Aleppo, a UN spokesman said.

"We are sending today an inter-agency convoy that will cross conflict lines into a besieged area of Rural Damascus," Jens Laerke, spokesman of the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs, told Reuters. "We will advise on the exact locations once the convoy has actually reached those locations."

Elizabeth Hoff, the World Health Organization (WHO) representative in Syria, told Reuters on Wednesday that the U.N. health agency planned to deliver medical supplies on Thursday to the rebel-held besieged Damascus suburb of Moadamiya, subject to the normal security risk assessments.
