Moscow – Russian servicemen have distributed 6.8 tonnes of humanitarian aid to almost 4,000 Syrian citizens in the past 24 hours, the Russian Center for Syrian Reconciliation said on Saturday.
The centre disclosed this in its daily bulletin posted by the Russian Defence Ministry.
“The aid was sent out in nine humanitarian events in the provinces of Aleppo, Hama and Daraa to a total of 3,950 Syrian civilians.
“In addition, the Russian military also delivered over 20 tonnes of UN-provided food to the Deir ez-Zor area in eastern Syria and helped dispatch a humanitarian convoy of 21 refrigerators to Mutaiya in Daraa province,’’ the bulletin added.
