The first batch of humanitarian aid reached the besieged Syrian towns of Madaya, Foua, and Kefraya, where, according to the United Nations, people are suffering from serious malnutrition.

According to reports, food, medical items, blankets and other materials are being delivered to the towns of Madaya in rural Damascus, and Foua and Kefraya near the city of Idlib.

The cargo reached the Syrians on Monday afternoon under the supervision of the UN, the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC), and Syrian Arab Red Crescent (IFRC).

Pawel Krzysiek, a spokesman for the ICRC, told reporters that 44 trucks entered Madaya and 21 others arrived in Kefraya and Foua.

There are believed to be around 20,000 Shia people in besieged in Foua and Kefraya. The operation has been brokered by the UN with the agreement of the different parties on the ground.
