LATAKIA (Syria), May 13. /TASS/. The Russian military’s Center for the Reconciliation of the Conflicting Sides in Syria has delivered humanitarian aid to the Skubin settlement in Latakia’s suburbs that has sheltered refugees from many other regions of the country, a senior officer from the reconciliation center told reporters on Saturday.
"At the request of Latakia’s governor, aid was delivered to the settlement of Skubin," Lieutenant-Colonel Denis Andronov said, adding that 1,500 tonnes of relief supplies had been handed out to local residents. He said food packages were rather hefty this time - five kilograms of tinned meat, rice, sugar and tea.
On Friday, lists of local residents in dire need were drawn up, and they were the first to receive humanitarian aid this time.
The Russian Defense Ministry declared the establishment of the reconciliation center on February 23, 2016, headquartered at the Hmeimim air base, in Syria’s Latakia province. The center was set up in line with agreements reached by Russia and the United States to facilitate negotiations between Damascus and the opposition, and to organize humanitarian deliveries.
