04.05.2017, Syria.

The Russian Center for reconciliation of opposing sides [in the Syrian Arab Republic] delivered humanitarian aid to the Syrian city of Afrin, RIA Novosti news agency reports on May 2.

About two and a half thousand people found refuge in the “Rabar” refugee camp.  A mobile field hospital and field kitchens have been deployed to provide relief to the community by the Russian Center for reconciliation.

Syrian army units are assisting with the delivery of humanitarian assistance to refugees.

The situation in the region is complicated by the positions of terrorist groups being in close proximity. The positions of “Jebhatt-an-Nusra” (organization banned in Russia) are located within a hundred meters from the Syrian army stronghold.

The Russian military has been delivering humanitarian aid to the Syrian city of Afrin, located in the north-east of the Aleppo province, on a regular basis.  Afrin is an important hub for humanitarian aid delivery to nearby Kurdish settlements.
