According to the press service, the Russian field engineers will fly to the Hmeymin airbase in Syria to take part in a humanitarian demining operation in Aleppo.
The ministry said that the center’s specialists took part in demining operations in Syria’s Palmyra.
"The Russian military destroyed about 18,000 explosive objects and demined an area of 825 hectares. Apart from that, specialists of the Russian International Anti-mine Center demined 8,500 buildings," the ministry said.
Syria’s government troops launched an operation to liberate Aleppo’s eastern districts seized by illegal armed groups in mid-November when the term of the latest ultimatum had expired. By now, more than 40% of Aleppo’s eastern districts with a population of about 90,000 have been liberated.
