Syrian authorities have still not responded to a request for a ceasefire to allow the wounded to be evacuated from the Baba Amro district of Homs, a spokeswoman for the International Committee of the Red Cross said.
“The ICRC did not receive an answer yet from the Syrian authorities. The current situation in Baba Amro and other areas affected by the violence is precisely why the ICRC made this request for a two-hour daily halt in the fighting,” spokeswoman Carla Haddad said, Reuters reports.
“The situation is worsening by the hour and people must get help immediately.”
