The village of Aramo lies in a mountainous area some 19 miles off the Mediterranean coast. It had a population of less than 500, according to the latest census.

"We brought two tonnes of flour, rice, canned meat and fish to vulnerable families – the most necessary food items," Col. Kirill Savin from Russia’s Syria reconciliation center in Hmeimim, Latakia, said.

Men of the village took to arms to defend their homes against Islamist insurgents, a member of the local administration told RIA Novosti. The Russian military was able to push jihadists almost 10 miles away. The village lost 20 people since the conflict in Syria flared up five years ago.
