    Violence Erupts as Islamic State Rises (1881)

    Russia delivered three tonnes of humanitarian aid on Tuesday to vulnerable families in the Syrian town of Massyad in Aleppo and a camp near Damascus housing the internally displaced, the Russian military said.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — A Russian air carrier also delivered 18 tonnes of UN aid – food products and grain – to the Islamist-besieged town of Deir ez-Zor.

    "Low-income families in Massyad (Aleppo province) and a camp for internally displaced persons in Damascus have received three tons of humanitarian cargoes with food products and sweets for children," the Russian Defense Ministry said in a statement.

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