The UN is calling to a humanitarian ceasefire in the region, specifically UN Under-secretary Jan Egeland.
Will it happen? Who knows…there doesn’t appear to be an end in sight anytime soon.
Allowing the evacuations to proceed uninhibited would be fantastic; however the humanitarian aid proposed to be spread through the area would
encourage persons to stay put. The distributions centers would need to be in the north, people brought to the food, medicines etc, but unfortunately
that is not the plan of WFP or UNHCR at the moment.

Doesn’t appear as if the negotiations went to well…
