Latest International Committee Of The Red Cross Items
Middle East analysts acknowledge that they underestimated Syrian President Bashar Assad, who remains in power and on the offensive a year after protests against his regime erupted.
Israel's foreign minister on Sunday offered to send humanitarian aid to Syria through the International Committee of the Red Cross.
Syria blocked a Red Cross convoy Friday from delivering badly needed food, medical supplies and blankets to a rebellious neighborhood of Homs cut off by a monthlong siege, and activists accused regime troops who overran the shattered district of execution-style killings and a scorched-earth campaign.
Syrian opposition fighters pulled out of a stronghold in the restive western city of Homs on Thursday, saying they did not have enough weapons to defend the civilians.
Red Cross teams reached Hama for the first time in more than a month on Monday, delivering food and other goods to the central Syrian city battered by a military crackdown on the anti-government uprising.
The Red Cross says it has failed to gain access to a besieged neighborhood in the Syrian city of Homs.
The Assad regime on Saturday continued to ignore international calls to end the violence.
Western and Arab officials on Friday will demand Syrian President Bashar Assad agree to a cease-fire and allow food and medical aid into his country, as Syria's main opposition group says foreign military intervention may be necessary to enforce "humanitarian corridors."
The International Committee of the Red Cross said Wednesday that it was holding a meeting with Syria's main opposition group in Geneva, a day after the humanitarian agency called for temporary cease-fires so it can bring in emergency aid and evacuate the wounded and sick from affected areas.
