MOSCOW, April 11. /TASS/. The Russian Armed Forces have delivered 700 tons of humanitarian aid to war-torn Syria, Deputy Defense Minister Anatoly Antonov said on Monday.

Russian sappers are currently deployed in the ancient Syrian city of Palmyra, clearing landmines planted by Islamic State terrorist group when it was in control of the city.
According to the deputy minister, "the demining issue is so big and vital in Syria that it would be right for the international community to offer its contribution and join the Russian military’s effort," he said, adding that Moscow proposed such cooperation to the UN and international organizations dealing with demining.
