Terrorists Open Fire on ICRC, SARC Vehicles in Madaya

Armed groups target Red Cross and Syrian Red Crescent convoy while travelling into the embattled town to evacuate “urgent cases”

Terrorist groups in the town of Madaya opened fire on a convoy of Red Cross and Syrian Red Crescent workers on Tuesday.

Armed fighters opened fire on the cars of a team from the International Committee of the Red Cross and the Syrian Arab Red Crescent as they were travelling into the town, west of Damascus, to evacuate three “urgent cases” along with their families, according to a source on the ground.

The evacuation operation was derailed for a number of hours, but was later resumed and the individuals were evacuated, the source said.
