The UN's refugee agency said Thursday it is ready to send emergency aid to thousands of Syrian families in previously inaccessible areas if a proposed ceasefire holds.

"In all, some 550 tonnes of supplies are being made available for distribution to up to 13,000 affected families - some 65,000 people - in several previously inaccessible areas," the UN High Commissioner for Refugees said in a statement.
