    The Russian-Syrian humanitarian aid is delivered to partially seized by militants Syria's southern city of Al Tall in the Damascus province, a RIA Novosti correspondent reported Friday.

    AL TALL (Syria) (Sputnik) — Al Tall population is estimated at 60,000 people. The city center is under control of one of the Syrian armed groups, with which reconciliation is negotiated.

    With the help of the officers of the Russian coordination center for reconciliation in Syria, a safe corridor for the delivery of humanitarian aid was organized in Al Tall. Each resident was given a humanitarian aid package including canned fish, beef stew, as well as rice, peas and beans.

    According to the local residents, there is no food shortage in Al Tall, but due to a significant reduction in incomes and rising prices almost every family took the opportunity to receive humanitarian aid.

    Syria has been in a state of civil war since 2011, with the government forces fighting several opposition factions and militant groups. The conflict has significantly damaged the country's economy and caused a humanitarian disaster.

    The Russian Center for Reconciliation of the Syrian Arab Republic has delivered at least 4.2 tonnes of humanitarian aid, mainly foodstuffs, to the residents of the Al Tall settlement, according to the center.
