>> A calm so rare in Aleppo that it seems unnatural. No civilian deaths reported in Syria since the cease fire began on Monday night. Russia's military, an ally of the government, saying its reconnaissance equipment shows the truce is holding in Aleppo. Still it's tense, and each side has reported isolated breaches by the other.
International aid organizations preparing to send in much needed convoys are holding off until it settles. Reuters Nick Tattersall is following events from Istanbul.>> There's been some reports of ceasefire violations, both by rebel groups and accusations strong Syrian government on Syrian state media. And counter accusations from the rebels saying pro-government forces have shelled in areas that surround Aleppo's countryside.
So for now, the international aid agencies, United Nations and the Red Cross, are saying they're making preparations, but they're waiting to see if the situation in northern Syria is safe enough to take it in.>> Two convoys of aid did cross the Turkish Syrian border though, but it's not guaranteed they will make it to those in need.
>> It's not clear whether the trucks that crossed this morning got very far into Syria, where they were just in no man's land, just on the Syrian side of the border. But, officials here are saying that more aid will be going in, once the situation on the ground becomes clearer.
>> The Syrian government effectively barred aid convoys this month. According to the U.N., Aleppo, divided and war-ravaged, has almost run out of fuel. Any aid that gets through can't come soon enough.
