KANAYA (Syria), April 4. /TASS/. Some five tons of Russian-Syrian humanitarian aid has been delivered to the inhabited locality of Kanaya in the Homs Governorate, which is under fire from the Jabhat al-Nusra terrorist organization, Russian correspondents reported from the site.
Each resident was given a humanitarian aid bag containing canned fish, stewed beef as well as two kilograms of rice, peas and beans. Special gift sets were given to local kids.
The main source of income in that district of the Homs Governorate is agriculture — olive tree farming. Residents of surrounding settlements were forced to leave their homes and plantations to escape terrorists and settle down in Kanaya, which was defended by the government army and militia.
The Syrian military say that even Kanaya regularly comes under fire from Jabhat al-Nusra and other terrorist groups.
The ceasefire regime took effect in Syria on February 27. Shortly before, the UN Security Council adopted a resolution supporting a cessation of hostilities. The document drafted by Russia and the United States was backed by all 15 Security Council member states.
The ceasefire regime does not cover the Islamic State and Jabhat al-Nusra terrorist organizations as well as other groups ruled terrorist by the Security Council.
Russia’s Aerospace Forces started delivering pinpoint strikes in Syria at facilities of the Islamic State and Jabhat al-Nusra terrorist organizations, which are banned in Russia, on September 30, 2015, on a request from Syrian President Bashar Assad.
On March 14, 2016, Russian President Vladimir Putin ordered to start, from March 15, withdrawing the main part of the Russian Aerospace Forces’ group from Syria. Putin said the tasks set before the military "have been fulfilled on the whole." Russian Deputy Defense Minister Nikolai Pankov said strikes on terrorists will continue to be delivered.
