MOSCOW, October 8. /TASS/. A batch of humanitarian cargo was delivered to residents of Aleppo in the framework of the Russian-Armenian humanitarian operation, the Russian Center for reconciliation of warring parties in Syria said in a bulletin published on the Defense Ministry’s official website on Saturday.
"In the framework of the Russian-Armenian operation carried out in the Jabaria district (Church of the Holy Mother of God) in the city of Aleppo, low-income residents received 27 tonnes of humanitarian cargo," the bulletin said. "Hot meal and necessities outlets continue to work for civilians leaving the parts of Aleppo under the control of illegal armed groups," the bulletin added.
The Defense Ministry said that on October 8, around 11am, Russian transport helicopter Mi-8 delivering humanitarian aid and accompanied by officer from the Russian reconciliation center, was shelled by militants from the Islamic State terrorist organization (banned in Russia) from multiple rocket launcher systems in the province of Hama.
"Thanks to the altitude of the flight, timely spotting of the launch and crew’s skills in maneuvering the aircraft, a direct hit to the helicopter was avoided. The servicemen in the helicopter were not injured," the ministry said.
