An aid convoy of 13 trucks is waiting outside Syria's eastern Ghouta and will deliver food into the rebel enclave on Friday, the International Committee of the Red Cross in Syria (ICRC) told Reuters.

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, a UK-based monitor, said there were no air strikes on Ghouta towns overnight, for the first time since the government launched a ground offensive there 10 days ago.
