    Russian military services have delivered about 5 metric tons of humanitarian aid to the refugee camps of the Syrian city of Hama, a spokesman for the Russian center in Hmeimim airbase said Saturday.

    HAMA (Syria) (Sputnik) — About 5 metric tons of humanitarian aid for nearly 1,200 people have been delivered by the Russian military to the refugee reception centers in the Syrian city of Hama, a spokesman for the Russian center for Syrian reconciliation at the Hmeimim airbase said Saturday.

    "We are engaged not only in reconciliation, but we also provide humanitarian aid from Russia. At the moment, we have chosen three schools in the Hama region hosting refugees from Aleppo, Idlib and eastern outskirts of Hama,” Col. Sergei Ivanov told reporters adding that besides food deliveries, the Russian military deployed a mobile medical station for the refugees.

    He added that the Russian reconciliation center is providing support to those affected by the Syrian crisis in close cooperation with the local authorities.

    Syria has been in a state of civil war since 2011, with forces loyal to Syrian President Bashar Assad fighting several opposition factions and extremist groups.
