FAN ESH-SHEMALI /Syria/, March 26. /TASS/. More than 10 tons of humanitarian cargoes have been delivered to settlements in Syria’s Hama province, which were earlier besieged and captured by terrorists of the Jabhat al-Nusra organization (banned in Russia). The distribution of humanitarian cargoes attended by Russian journalists, took place in Fan esh-Shemali where official representatives and residents from eight neighboring settlements had gathered.
The humanitarian aid was also delivered to Fan al Wastani settlement, which had been besieged by the Jabhat al-Nusra militants, though the local militia supported by the Syrian armed forced managed to prevent the breakthrough operation. "Now the situation is stable thanks to Russia," a militia fighter said. Also, the head of the local administration thanked all who lended assistance, particularly Russia, which he said "contributed the most to the process of national reconciliation in Syria."
Russian and U.S. Presidents, Vladimir Putin and Barack Obama, adopted a statement on February 22 on a ceasefire in Syria from February 27.
Both countries undertook to influence the Syrian political forces close to them to achieve truce in Syria. The truce regime is not applicable to the groupings recognized by the United Nations as terrorist organizations, such as the Islamic State and Jabhat al-Nusra (both outlawed in Russia).
