Russian Military Delivers Over 4 Tonnes of Humanitarian Aid to Syria’s Daraa

The Russian Defence Ministry’s Centre for Syrian Reconciliation has brought over four tonnes of humanitarian aid to the residents of two settlements in the southwestern Syrian province of Daraa, the centre’s spokesman said.

“We have delivered food with a total weight of more than four tonnes to the settlements in the province of Daraa. More than 1,000 families residing in these communities have received humanitarian assistance”, the centre’s spokesman Aleksander Makarenko told reporters.

On Saturday, the Russian Centre for Syrian Reconciliation said it had registered ceasefire violations by militant groups in the Syrian provinces of Latakia, Idlib, and Aleppo.

“Over the past day, militants have attacked settlements of Safsafa and Jubb al-Mgara in Latakia Province, Abu-Omar (twice) in Idlib Province, Tel Hamra and Hara in Aleppo Province”, Head of the Russian Defence Ministry’s Centre for Syrian Reconciliation Maj.

Russia, Turkey, and Iran have been the guarantors of the peace process in crisis-ridden Syria for over two years since the first round of Astana talks. Russia carries out humanitarian operations across the country on a regular basis and helps Damascus in providing safe passage for the return of Syrian refugees.
