MOSCOW (Sputnik) – It also added that the humanitarian situation in the western part of the city of Aleppo is under the control of the Syrian government troops. According to the bulletin, first aid centers and posts with hot meal continue their work in the humanitarian corridors.
“Low-income families of the Ain-al-Beida (Latakia province) and Al-Baas (Al-Quneitra province) inhabited areas have received more than 5 tons of humanitarian cargos with rice, sugar, tea, canned meat and fish. Aircraft of the Abakan Air, Russian aviation company, has dropped 21 tons of UN humanitarian cargos with corns, salt, and sugar on Deir ez-Zor, which had been besieged by ISIS [Daesh] terrorists,” the bulletin said.
Syria has been mired in civil war since 2011, with government forces loyal to President Bashar Assad fighting numerous opposition factions and extremist groups.
On February 27, a US-Russia brokered ceasefire came into force in Syria. Terrorist groups such as Daesh, as well as Jabhat Fatah al Sham (previously known as the al-Nusra Front), both outlawed in Russia and a range of other states, are not part of the deal.
