"The Syrian Arab Red Crescent team are inside Baba Amro. The objective is to bring in assistance and evacuate people who need to be evacuated," ICRC spokesman Hicham Hassan told Reuters in Geneva.
The Syrian Arab Red Crescent volunteers had brought in medical supplies, mainly kits for treating the wounded, he said.
