Syrian troops clashed with army defectors and shelled rebellious districts in the central city of Homs Wednesday, killing at least 11 civilians a day after the government claimed it had begun a troop withdrawal ahead of the deadline to implement an international truce plan.
"We have received the green light from the authorities to enter Baba Amr and take in food assistance and medical aid, and to try and evacuate as many wounded as well," he said in a phone interview.
Mr. Dabbakeh said humanitarian operations would depend on the security situation.
