"Today, we distributed 3 tonnes of humanitarian aid among Al-Qabu inhabitants who really need support. Children received a variety of treats, including waffles, cookies and candy," the spokesperson told journalists.
Al-Qabu population received individual food rations and humanitarian packages with canned food, sugar, flour and cereal. Russian medics also established a mobile health center to provide much needed medical treatment.
Syria has been mired in civil war since 2011, with government forces loyal to Syrian President Bashar Assad fighting numerous opposition factions and extremist groups. A US-Russia-brokered ceasefire came into force across Syria on February 27, but it does not apply to terrorist organizations active in the country.
