Protest of solidarity with besieged town of Madaya

epa05092718 Supporters of Jemaah Islamiyah (Islamic Group) carry a placard depicting pictures believed to be for children from the Syrian town of Madaya and Arabic reading ‘Save children of Madaya’ during a protest in front of the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) headquarters in Beirut, Lebanon, 08 January 2016. Aid agencies have received permission from the Syrian government to deliver relief supplies to the three besieged towns, Madaya, Foua and Kefraya, whose residents are reportedly starving, the Red Cross said. Madaya, a rebel-held town about 25 kilometres north-west of the capital, Damascus, has been under siege since July by forces loyal to Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, aided by fighters from the allied Lebanese Hezbollah movement.
