    Russia delivered more than 1,5 metric tons of humanitarian aid to the Syrian cities of Latakia and Tartus, a daily bulletin published on the Russian Defense Ministry’s website on Sunday said.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Syria has been mired in civil war since 2011, with government forces loyal to President Bashar Assad fighting numerous opposition factions and extremist groups.

    "Low-income families of the Latakia and Tartus cities have received over 1,5 tons of humanitarian cargoes. Posts with hot meal and items of first necessity continue their work for civilians who leave the districts of the Aleppo city, which are under control of terrorist armed groupings," the bulletin reads.

    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.
