The Russian forces have held one humanitarian operation over the past 24 hours in the southwestern As-Suwayda province, providing over one metric ton of food to local residents.

Syria has been in a state of civil war since 2011, with the government forces fighting against numerous opposition groups and militant and terrorist organizations. Russia, along with Turkey and Iran, is a guarantor of the ceasefire regime in Syria.

Moscow has also been providing humanitarian aid to residents of the crisis-torn country.
