    Russian military delivered two metric tons of humanitarian aid to the Syrian Provinces of Hama and Homs, the Russian Defense Ministry said in a statement Monday.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Ministry also noted that Russia's Abakan Air aviation company has dropped 15 metric tons of UN humanitarian cargos on the city of Deir ez-Zor, which had been besieged by terrorists.

    "Low-income families of Suwayda (Hama province) and a camp for internally displaced persons near Wadi al-Daab in the Homs city have received two tons of humanitarian cargos with flour, rice, canned meat and fish," the ministry said in a daily bulletin posted on its website.

    The ceasefire in Syria brokered 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.
