    The Russian center for Syrian reconciliation has delivered humanitarian aid to almost 2,000 Syrians in the past 24 hours, having also helped with the distribution of UN aid in Syria, the center said in its daily bulletin.

    HMEIMIM (Sputnik) – According to the Russian reconciliation center, a total of 1,978 Syrian civilians received aid in the past 24 hours.

    "Citizens have received 6.3 tons of bottled drinking water and food products in the areas al-Zahraa, Bustan al-Qasr, Benezid, and al-Salkhin areas, the Hananu district of the Aleppo city as well as in Kudekhi in the Aleppo province," the bulletin, posted by the Russian Defense Ministry on Friday, says.

    Russia has also helped distribute UN aid.

    "Russian aircraft delivered 20.3 [metric] tons of humanitarian aid (food products) to the Deir ez-Zor area using parachute platforms. The aid was provided by the United Nations," the center said.
