IZRA (Syria), April 21. /TASS/. Russian servicemen have delivered 500 food packages to residents of Izra in Syrian province Daraa, a representative of the Coordination center to reconcile the warring parties in Syria Yury Zraev told reporters on Thursday.
Local residents received flour, cereals, canned food and sweets - cookies and candy.
"We act as mediators in talks between the sides that strive for ceasefire and are ready to lay down arms and return to peaceful life. The process of reconciliation helps unite families divided by the war and return to their homes," Zraev said at a celebratory demonstration organized by the province’s leadership and local residents.
He also expressed hope that schools and hospitals will be restored and Syrian people will live in peace and prosperity.
The ceasefire regime took effect in Syria on February 27. Shortly before, the UN Security Council adopted a resolution supporting 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 designated as terrorist by the Security Council.
