MOSCOW   Russia delivered 25 metric tons of humanitarian aid to Syria’s provinces of Aleppo and Homs as well as the city of Deir Ez-Zor besieged by terrorists, a daily bulletin on the Russian Defense Ministry website said on Friday.

“Mi-8 helicopters have dropped 2 tons of humanitarian cargos on regions of Aleppo controlled by armed formations. Low-income families of al-Butma (Homs province) have received 2 tons of humanitarian cargos with flour, rice, canned meat and fish,” the bulletin said.

The Russian Defense Ministry also said that an aircraft of the Abakan Air, Russian aviation company, delivered 21 metric tons of humanitarian aid to Deir ez-Zor.

“Aircraft of the Abakan Air, Russian aviation company, has dropped 21 tons of UN humanitarian cargos with corns and tomato paste on Deir ez-Zor, which had been besieged by ISIS terrorists,” the bulletin said.Syria has been mired in civil war since 2011, with government forces loyal to President Bashar Assad fighting numerous opposition factions and extremist groups. On February 27, a US-Russia brokered ceasefire came into force in Syria. Terrorist groups such as Islamic State (IS, also known as Daesh), as well as Jabhat al-Nusra (Nusra Front), both outlawed in Russia and a range of other states, are not part of the deal.
