ALEPPO /SYRIA/, November 18 /TASS/. The Russian Center for Reconciliation of the Opposing Parties in Syria has delivered more than a tonne of relief aid to refugees from the rebel-held area of eastern Aleppo, the center’s representative Danil Rychkov said.
"Today, we are carrying out a humanitarian operation in a refugee camp in the al-Jamila district. Bread, sugar and vegetable oil have been distributed among the refugees from eastern Aleppo. All in all, about a tonne of relief cargo was delivered," Rychkov noted.
According to the representative, in compliance with the Aleppo governor’s decision, a joint humanitarian effort has got underway in the city and the surrounding areas where forcibly displaced persons, who are in urgent need of aid, are staying.
He added that the Russian military was also planning to visit the Al-Aran locality in the as-Safira district to help the local residents and refugees there.
Hostilities continue to rage on in eastern Aleppo. Refugees, who are now staying in a refugee camp, have said that militants carry out daily punitive operations against the starving and war-ravaged population.
"I have been staying here for five years ever since I fled the terrorist-held district of Salah al-Din. I hope I will be able to return there thanks to the Syrian army victories and the help of our Russian friends," refugee Amun Gadir said.
"Insurgents attacked my neighborhood. They killed my brother who served in the army. Therefore, my family and I fled to the al-Jamila district. We are now living in this refugee camp," Mahmoud Alukasyr told journalists. He thanked the Russia government and the Russian people for their support. "We will always remember that," he stated.
