    Background: JOUNIEH/WEST BEIRUT, LEBANON

    Medical supplies and ambulances have arrived in Lebanon supplied by the International Red Cross. The Red Cross ship "Flora" transferred supplies to the port of Jounieh, norther of Beirut, from the Red Cross logistics base in Larnaca, Cyprus. A spokeswoman for the Red Cross in London said supplies were getting through to the refugees in West Beirut either by sea, or by air to Damascus and Tel Aviv and then by raid convoys. However, safe passage has to be negotiated for each consignment, and this be time consuming. As well as medical supplies, the Red Cross and the other relief agencies are supplying blankets, tents and food to the refuges, but a spokesman for the PLO said on July 13 that West Beirut was short of food. Despite Israel's food blockade around the city, reports indicate some fresh meat and vegetables are available,at grossly inflated prices. The majority of refugees,however, depend on the Red Cross for their food supplies and collect rations from mobile Red Cross stations in whatever containers they can find.
