FIRST AID: The Syrian Arab Red Crescent delivered a load of wheelchairs and crutches to rebel-held eastern areas of Aleppo city Tuesday through the Kraj al-Hajz crossing, reported the group on its Facebook page.
Earlier in February, rebel group Ahrar a-Sham cooperated with the Red Crescent to move 11 women with chronic illnesses from rebel to regime-controlled territory through the same crossing in order to receive medical treatment, reported pro-opposition Siraj Press.
The Kraj al-Hajz crossing had been closed since February of last year after regime snipers repeatedly targeted civilians trying to cross.
In related news, regime forces launched mortars into the Bustan al-Qasr neighborhood on Tuesday, located nearby the Kraj al-Hajz crossing, reported the pro-opposition Qasion News Agency.
