    DAMASCUS (Sputnik) — A Czech plane with humanitarian aid for Syrians will arrive in the Damascus International Airport on Sunday, an informed source told Sputnik.

    According to the source, at least one other humanitarian aircraft is expected to be sent to Syria from the Czech Republic next week.

    In April, Czech Deputy Foreign Minister Martin Tlapa said Prague approved two aid deliveries to Syria worth about $166,000.

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

    The ceasefire in Syria, worked out by Russia and the United States, took effect on February 27 to facilitate humanitarian access to all besieged areas in the country, among other purposes.
