MOSCOW (Sputnik) — The Russian servicemen delivered 4.5 metric tons (5 US tons) of humanitarian aid to the settlement of Qanaqiyah in the Syrian province of Homs, the Russian reconciliation center said in a bulletin.

"As many as 4.5 tonnes of humanitarian aid were delivered to the Qanaqiyah settlement in the province of Homs. Medical aid was administered to 47 locals, including 12 children," the statement, published by the Russian Defense Ministry on Monday, read.

Syria has been mired in civil war since 2011, with government forces loyal to President Bashar Assad fighting numerous opposition factions and extremist groups.

A US-Russia-brokered ceasefire came into force across Syria on February 27, but it does not apply to terrorist organizations active in the country.
