    BEIRUT (Sputnik) — All of the cargo, fitted with a parachute system, landed on an airfield territory, Al Mayadeen TV broadcaster reported on Friday.

    Last Saturday, the servicemen at the base managed to force terrorists to retreat while the military in the city launched a counter-offensive after Russia and Syrian aircraft carried out strikes on targets of Daesh, banned in Russia and many other countries.

    Deir ez-Zor and the nearby airbase have been under siege for over three years, with food and ammunition only delivered by air.
