MOSCOW, December 10. /ITAR-TASS/. Russia has delivered a 44 tonne humanitarian consignment to Syria, Emergencies Ministry spokesperson Irina Rossius told Itar-Tass on Tuesday.
“Two planes of the Emergencies Ministry, Il-76 and Il-62, landed at Latakia’s airport. They brought camp furniture, tents, beds, blankets, dishware, canned food and preserves, medicines and essentials,” she said.
In 2013 the Russian Emergencies Ministry sent over 200 tonnes of humanitarian aid to Syria and neighbouring Lebanon and Jordan. Another 70 tonnes were intended for Palestinian refugees in Syria. The humanitarian consignment consisted of tents, electric generators, dishware, camp furniture, blankets, food and baby food.
The ministry’s planes brought around 900 citizens of Russia and the CIS member-states back to their homeland.
