TAL SALHAB (Syria), April 19. /TASS/. Around three tons of Russian humanitarian aid has been delivered to residents of Tal Salhab in the Syrian province of Hama, a representative of the coordination center to reconcile the warring parties in Syria Col. Sergey Ivanov told reporters on Tuesday.
Residents of Tal Salhab received packages with semi-finished products, canned fish and meat, sugar, flour, dry milk and cereals. Children received presents in the form of waffles, biscuits and candy. Moreover, Russian military doctors set up a mobile medical clinic in Tal Salhab and provided medical assistance to those who needed it.
"We choose not only hotspots that were damaged the most but also border regions, near which gangs are operating, so that people in the settlements controlled by those gangs see that it is easier and better to live with the state," Ivanov said.
He noted that humanitarian aid was delivered to around 2,000 people from the poorest families in the city, where fathers, grown-up children or brothers died fighting against terrorists.
Among those who helped organize the delivery of humanitarian aid to Tal Salhab residents was a deputy of the Syrian parliament and the city’s mayor.
"On the behalf of myself and of the Syrian parliament, I want to once again thank the Russian people and Russian leadership for support. I also want to thank the Russian Church and say thank you for helping us in the fight against international terrorism," Mohammad al-Jubaili, who was elected to the parliament at April 13 election, said.
He added that before the war, Syria welcomed many refugees from Iraq and Jordan and helped everyone in need, like Russia is doing now, acting in strict compliance with the norms of international law.
The ceasefire between government forces and armed opposition took effect in Syria at 00:00 Damascus Time on February 27. An hour before the agreement entered into force, UN Security Council adopted a resolution in support of cessation of hostilities in Syria.
