MOSCOW, December 18. /ITAR-TASS/. A plane of the Russian Emergencies Ministry has left for Lebanon with humanitarian consignment for Syrian refugees, the ministry’s information department told Itar-Tass on Wednesday.
“An Il-76 plane left for Beirut early on Wednesday. It has almost 40 tonnes of humanitarian cargo on board,” the source said.
The cargo includes tents, blankets, sugar and canned food.
In 2013 the Russian Emergencies Ministry sent over 200 tonnes of humanitarian aid to Syria and neighboring Lebanon and Jordan. Another 70 tonnes were intended for Palestinian refugees in Syria.
