An aid convoy, carrying some 400 food packages, was expected to enter the camp one day after a first batch of food aid was delivered, after an agreement was reached between representatives of Palestinian factions and rebels inside the camp.The aid was carried out in coordination with the U.N. agency for Palestinian refugees UNRWA, which provided food parcels that were delivered to the camp via an intermediary.Raja said the aim is to send 7,000 boxes for 7,000 families into the camp's rebel-held areas. He added that more food supplies would be sent into the camp in the coming days and later medical supplies would be sent as well.Opposition activists and news websites have criticized the piecemeal distribution of food aid for Yarmouk, calling it woefully adequate for the thousands of desperate residents of the camp.
