MOSCOW, April 16. /TASS/. Three tons of humanitarian cargoes have been delivered to the settlement of Meshera in Syria’s province of Homs, the Russian center for reconciliation of the warring parties in Syria said in a regular daily bulletin posted on the Russia’s defense ministry’s website on Friday.
Most of these cargoes were food products. According to the bulletin, the Russian center’s medics offered medical assistance to 28 local residents.
"Syria’s government has delivered 22 tons of food products to the city of Deir ez-Zor besieged by Islamic State gunmen with the help of Russian parachute platforms," the center said, adding that another humanitarian convoy is being formed for people temporarily living in camps for internally displaced persons in the province of Latakia.
A ceasefire regime brokered by Russia and the United States on February 22 officially came into effect in Syria at midnight Damascus time on February 27. This does not cover terrorist groups such as Islamic State and Jabhat al-Nusra, both outlawed in Russia, and other groups recognized as terrorist by the United Nations Security Council.
An hour before the ceasefire came into force, the United Nations Security Council adopted a resolution in support cessation of hostilities in Syria. The document was initiated by Russia and the United States and won support from all the 15 members of the United Nations Security Council.
