UN Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA) had been forced to halt its distribution of food and other essential supplies to civilians at Yarmouk camp since February 8 when clashes between rebels and government forces erupted at the rebel-held district, media reported.

The agency welcomes the agreement between various parties reached on Wednesday, which created the conditions for the resumption of its humanitarian work in Yarmouk, UN spokesperson Martin Nesirky said at a daily news briefing in United Nations.

"It hopes that the positive developments in Yarmouk can give momentum to peaceful dialogue between all parties so that there can be humanitarian access for all civilians in Syria," he said.
