BEIRUT, December 18. /ITAR-TASS/. A plane of the Russian Emergencies Ministry with humanitarian consignment for Syrian refugees in Lebanon has landed at Beirut International Airport, the ministry’s information department told Itar-Tass on Wednesday.
An Il-76 plane delivered a 40 tonne humanitarian cargo that includes tents, blankets, sugar and canned food for 840,000 Syrian refugees in Lebanon.
