ALEPPO, SYRIA (2:00 A.M.) – For the second day in a row, humanitarian aid was not delivered to the besieged neighborhoods of east Aleppo.

The humanitarian aid convoys were once again stuck at the border, following the Free Syrian Army’s (FSA) refusal to leave their section of the Castillo Highway in northern Aleppo.

Due to rebel obstinacy and their sporadic attacks, the Syrian Armed Forces were required to return to the Castillo Highway in order to protect the Syria Red Crescent Society workers that were coming under fire.

The humanitarian groups will attempt to deliver the aid again tomorrow; however, there is no guarantee that the Islamist rebels will leave the highway.
