10:03 pm
the rest of them are civilians the united nations on its part says that it has been ready to provide aid it is not an ideal situation to provide a ceasefire for just a few hours a day it should completely be enforced but it is a good beginning here's what the united nations security council and united nations spokesman told out there we stand ready as soon as the conditions are safe for truck drivers humanitarian workers to roll into these areas. which for that to be effective. the fighting needs to stop we need to ensure that there are no roadblocks whether physical or administrative. whether or not. five hours is enough not enough it's a difficult question to answer five hours is better than no hours but we would like to see any sation of hostages be extended. thirty days as the security council
